According to bandleader and clarinetist Rouzbeh Esfandarmaz, Pallet will perform pieces from its two albums 'Mr. Violet' and 'Tehran, Smile.'

"Unfortunately, other countries have not presented a good image of Iran and Iranians to their people," said Esfandarmaz. "Pallet and other musicians should therefore introduce Persian music to the non-Iranian audience."

Vocalist Omid Nemati, cellist Mahyar Tahmasebi, guitarist Kaveh Salehi and double-bass player Dariush Azar accompany Esfandarmaz during the tour.

The fusion band Pallet has held many concerts in Iran and other countries such as France, Germany, Sweden, Italy and the Netherlands.
