Keeping Time with Blue Hyacinths, a NowRuz sonata in seven movement, Sholeh Wolpe and Payam Yusefi Past

Saturday, March 19, 2016 ,
7:00 PM
- D.C., DC, United States

A sumptuous music and poetry journey performed by Sholeh Wolpé to music composed for this piece by Payam Yousefi. The poem which itself is in seven movements, utilizes the seven tokens Iranians put on their table in anticipation and final celebration of each new year, as a metaphor for her own journey away from her country, and the futility of searching for home. Sholeh will be accompanied by Payam Yousefi on the santoor, a traditional Middle Eastern musical instrument.
