Ziya Tabassian

Ziya received his first tombak for his 10th birthday, at his request. After a short period of initiation in Iran, he self-trained following the technique of the grand master Tehrani. From 1994 to 2001, Ziya studied European classical percussion under Julien Grégoire. In the winter of 2002, he went to Iran to develop his tombak playing with Bahman Rajabi. More
