Sehrang: Iranian Music with Jazz Sensibilities PastFriday, July 17, 2015 ,
The Red Poppy Art House warmly welcomes Sehrang for the band's debut performance in San Francisco, presented by Diaspora Arts Connection.
Sehrang, meaning tri-colored in Farsi, is a trio comprised of three young Iranian musicians who share the same vision for making a new sound inspired by and rooted in their common culture. The band uses the harmonies influenced by jazz and European music and lets itself be inspired by melodies from south to north of Iran, and even as far as Africa and South America. Their lyrics are mostly in Farsi, either self-written or from modern Iranian poets such as Ahamd Shamloo. Sehrang’s repertoire consists of original compositions as well as new arrangements of Iranian folk and traditional songs. Nevertheless, the band leaves its musical signature in each and every piece. Sehrang released its first CD in February 2014 which has been well-received among international critics.
