Roghieh Chehre-Azad Distinguished Professorship Presentation
Parissa is the first holder of the Roghieh Chehre-Azad Distinguished Professorship. She is Iran's most distinguished female vocalist, who is visiting UC San Diego to share her deep knowledge of Radif - the classical repertoire of Persian traditional music. Its melodic patters are preserved through many generations and provide the basis for improvisation in Persian traditional music. Radif is taught through oral tradition and the repertoire evolves and is preserved by masters of each generation, such as Parissa.
