Join us for a powerful presentation of Sufi whirling and Kurdish and Persian classical music, featuring maestro Majid Derakhshani — one of Iran’s leading composers and master tar players. Presented by Rumi Canada and Andalibi Music Academy, this concert pays tribute to the female artists and vocalists of Iran.
The show’s first half explores improvisation music with Majid Derakhshani on the tar, Shaho Andalibi on the ney, and Naghmeh Farahmand on percussion.
The second half features the Andalibi Music Academy’s Baanovan Ensemble, an all-female instrumental group, performing Kurdish and Persian music. The presentation will be accompanied by Sufi whirling dancer Farzad Attar Jafari from Rumi Canada.
