Many maqams, such as Esfehan, Nahawand and Hijaz, are named after places. Shushtari literally means from Shushtar, a town in south-western Iran close to the ancient city of Shush (Susa). Shush and Shushtar are famous for their fine-quality reeds from which the Ney is made. The prelude (pishdramad) we played in this concert was composed by the legendary Ney master Ostad Hassan Kasaei.
