Parissa: An Evening of Persian Classical Music
$25 members, students with ID and seniors, $35 non-members

Renowned classical Iranian vocalist Parissa sings the words of poet Rumi accompanied by renowned tar player Iman Vaziri together with Dara Afraz on daf and tombak.

With a voice “at once refined and deeply emotional” (The Planet, Australia), Parissa’s perfection lies in the simplicity with which she interprets the 13th century poet’s works, reaching into the heart to bring the beauty of Rumi’s words alive.

Ethnomusicologist Stephen Blum and Ameneh Youssefzadeh provide an in-depth overview of Persian music in a pre-performance lecture on both nights at 6pm.

Parissa’s performance is made possible through the generous support of the Parsa Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

This event is part of "Muslim Voices Festival," a multi-venue arts festival and conference, presented by Asia Society, BAM, and NYU Center for Dialogues, from June 5-14, 2009 throughout New York City, that includes artists from India, Indonesia, Iran, Kuwait, Morocco, Pakistan, Palestine, Senegal, Syria, and the U.S.
