Across his career, Kalhor has composed music for Sajarian, and this film features all new pieces by him and tar player Ali Ashgar Arabshahi. The concert was filmed in the exquisite Mahinistan Raheb Hotel, a 200-year-old architecturally sublime historic locale in Kashan, an ancient desert city and an important stop on the Silk Road full of history.
