Hamid Khezri on Dotar

The dotar is a two-stringed Iranian instrument, part of the long-necked lute family. Its sound is somewhat similar to that of the Turkish saz, though it’s played in a very different way.

Hamid Khezri “is renowned as a versatile musician equally at home in a wide range of musical styles ranging from the folk music of his North Khorassan home, the Sufi music of the South Khorassan deserts and the troubadour traditions of the mountains of North Khorassan to original compositions and a variety of cross-over projects.”
