Reflection of Silence: An exploration of Persian and Kurdish Music.
2016 UK Tour - Live in Manchester

From out of the Silence come ripples, softly rising, like waves on a lake, so green, tender as the breath of spring, as the ancient harp plays melodies of a sacred musical lore… and we seize magic of this moment to reflect, and listen to our hearts.

We are delighted to invite you to another night of musical mastery where traditional Persian, Kurdish and classical music come together in an enthralling collaboration of four highly acclaimed artists who share a passion for creative improvisation.

Reflection of Silence explores a living musical heritage in a contemporary setting to take us on a journey in time to thousands of years of mystical wisdom in the cultures of the Silk Road.

The evening at the RNCM Concert Hall will be introduced by Paula Darwish Trio. Paula Darwish has given voice to folk music of Anatolian and Mesopotamian origin in her recordings and performances in the UK and abroad over the past decade. In this concert, she will be accompanied by baglama player and vocalist Serpil Kilic from Turkey and by darbuka player Debbie Busby.

After this unique introduction, Reflection of Silence come to the stage to present the Art of Improvisation in Traditional Persian Music, followed by a contemporary rendition of ancient Kurdish pieces.

Join us for this fascinating contemporary exploration of Persian and ancient Kurdish musical traditions.
