Jan and Tovas Porvas Live, Iranian Cultural Sufi Music Past

- Boise, ID, United States

Jan and Tovas Porvas married in 2006 and have performed together around the world ever since. Jan was born into an entire family of musicians in the city of Tabriz, one of Iran's premier cultural centers. He started his musical career playing traditional Iranian rhythmic instruments like the Nagara and the keyboard. In his 20's, Jan learned to play the Tanbor, Kopuz, Daf and even the saxophone. Tovas was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, and began playing music at just 6 years old. She sang and performed in many festivals in Baku, often placing among the top three young performers. Tovas is a poet and Jan is a composer. For more than a decade, the duo has been united in their mutual love for music. They arrived in the U.S. and Boise in the summer of 2016 with their young daughter.

Today they aim to keep their Sufi cultural traditions alive and thriving through the arts. They are music instructors looking to share their talents and rich musical history with the people of Boise!

Come enjoy a fun night of coffee and culture as we welcome these newer refugees to our area!
