About the show
Playing tracks by
Yussuf Mahmud and Hossein Zahawi .
January 22nd 2011 Festival of Arts presents a night of improvised music and experimental Iranian dance: Sufi’s Night
Fusing the influences of disciplined dances such as tango and flamenco, Iranian dance takes on an almost Indian Kathak like energy, and the dramatic motions of the two performers Shahrokh Meshkin Ghalam and Karine Gonzales convey all the regal dignity of the epic stories and emotions they relate.
Here we interview daf impresario Hossein Zahavi, who is playing percussion on the night, and table maestro Yusuf Mamud who will be performing on vocals and tabla.
This is recorded in the Resonance104.4FM studios, as a podcast only for Six Pillars to Persia
