Mohsen Namjoo Concert Past

Friday, Sept 27, 2013 ,
8:00 PM
- Toronto, Canada

$55-$85 + $120 VIP, Reserved Seating

Hailed as 'the Bob Dylan of Iran' by the New York Times, the 12th Annual Small World Music Festival & Link Music Lab present Mohsen Namjoo, a true musical maverick who speaks for and touches the souls of today’s youth. A singer, songwriter, music scholar and setar player, his unique style is a patchwork blend of Persian classical poetry with rock, blues and jazz. His 2007 release Toranj, mostly produced underground, exploded because of its subversive words and unique fusion of Persian traditions and Western melodies – synthesizing the ancient with the modern. Namjoo’s bold music broke through all social, cultural, and musical taboos. It also insulted the Islamic regime, which called for his arrest, eventually forcing him into exile. Since then, he has consolidated his place at the forefront of global music, working in film and theatre, while performing on some of the world's most prestigious stages to a growing legion of fans.
