Songs of Hope
A new sound of Persian music
This project is a return to roots for Kiya Tabassian. Joined by his ensemble, he presents a concert consisting entirely of new works for Persian instruments and the sublime voice of Sepideh Raissadat, a leading figure of the Iranian new generation of female singers.
This concert offers a luminous vision of Iran and invites the audience into the heart of a rich musical and poetic history of several millennia.
