“...impassioned singing and meticulous improvisation...” - NY Times

In this project composed and created by Hafez Nazeri, Persian music icon Shahram Nazeri joins his son and the Rumi Ensemble (Dave Eggar/cello, Liuh Wen Ting/viola, Pejmon Hadadi/daf and dammam, and Shane Shanahan/Indian and world percussion). In the Path of Rumi integrates classical Iranian and Western musical tradition, this transformation of classical Persian music into an evolved form promises a future of its own.

Celebrating next year’s 800th birthday of Rumi, this concert launches the Sufi Traditions and Music: New Interpretations of Transcendent Vision series. Renowned poet and Rumi interpreter Coleman Barks gives a reading preceding the concert.

Saturday and Sunday, October 28 and 29, 2006
6:30 p.m. Poetry reading by Coleman Barks (for concert ticket holders only)
8:00 p.m. Concert
At Asia Society and Museum
