We talk a lot about musical instruments in New Orleans, so much so that it feels like our music dates back thousands of years. But the santur, a trapezoid-shaped stringed instrument, actually does date back thousands of years. NolaVie’s Kelley Crawford invited Dr. Sepehr Saberian into the studio to discuss and play the santur.
