MOHAMMAD REZA MORTAZAVI (IR)
Sunday 08.07.12 - 13:00 - Gloria
Drums are useful as more than just a rhythmic backbone.
Since childhood, Mohammad Reza Mortazavi has been remarkably talented with the Persian handheld drum known as the tombak. With shimmering strokes and finger techniques, the Iranian creates a new world of sounds and effects. Delicate and refined but so massively and explosively talented that you almost feel tempted to pinch your arm.
Mortazavi conjures up an almost narrative thread with his simple instrument and puts any theories about the limited capabilities of the drum to shame.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
