In anticipation of Amir ElSaffar's visit to Columbus on October 10 for a Wex-presented performance at the Lincoln Theatre with his Two Rivers Ensemble and guest vocalist Hamid Al-Saadi, Lane chatted with Amir about working with Hamid, the Iraqi Maqam singing tradition Hamid represents, and the transcendent experience music lovers can expect from their show together.
