A Stroll in the Rose Garden: Exquisite Sounds of Persian Music

May 27 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Standing Rock Cultural Arts' "Around the World" Music Series presents "A Stroll in the Rose Garden: Exquisite Sounds of Persian Music" featuring Dariush Saghafi, santur (hammered dulcimer) Yahya John Golestan, tar (long-necked lute) Bijan Ranahosaini, tombak (goblet drum) Ghasem Parva, daf (frame drum) and special guest vocalist Momtaz Charepoo from St. Louis, Missouri 8:00 p.m., Saturday, May 27, 2017 North Water Street Gallery 300 N. Water Street, Suite H Kent, Ohio $10 suggested donation (or pay what you can) preceded by 7:30 p.m. meet-and-greet featuring light food and drinks Rarely heard in the West, the classical music of Iran is one of the oldest and most sophisticated of the world's musical traditions. Four of the area's most talented exponents of this tradition will treat audience members to the art of the dastgāh (musical modes) that have been performed for centuries for royal audiences in the palaces of Old Persia. Intimately entwined with the classical poetry of such masters as Rumi and Hafez, as well as the mystical traditions of the Sufi, Persian classical music can be seen as a kind of poetic expression, transmitted through the tones of the players' instruments. Weaving together strands of familiar melody and enlivened by periodic flights of improvisation, skilled performers can uplift the spirits of their listeners, bringing their souls nearer to the divine essence that lies within. The instruments used will include the santur ("instrument of 100 strings," the original hammered dulcimer), tar (long-necked lute), tombak (goblet drum), anddaf (large frame drum). Special guest vocalist Momtaz Charepoo of St. Louis, Missouri will join the ensemble for several poetic songs with lyrics by classical Persian poets including Hafez, Saadi, Attar, and others. The program will be divided into three parts: Part 1 - Dastgāh Esfahān and Dastgāh Shur Part 2 - Santur solo in Dastgāh Chahārgāh Part 3 - Dastgāh Māhur A 7:30 p.m. meet-and-greet featuring complimentary Persian snacks will precede the 8 p.m. program. A variety of beverages (including freshly squeezed pomegranate juice) will be on hand for a nominal charge. Facebook event page:https://www.facebook.com/events/441634042838366/ * * * * * The North Water Street Gallery is conveniently located just a block north of the intersection of Main and Water Streets in Kent, Ohio, with free street parking on both sides of the street. Seating is limited, so arrive early for the best seats. ---------------- Established in 2015, the "Around the World" Music Series is a concert series presenting outstanding musicians from diverse cultures in an intimate setting. Concerts are held approximately every other month in the new theater space of the North Water Street Gallery in downtown Kent, Ohio. The series is an initiative of Standing Rock Cultural Arts, and is curated by ethnomusicologist David Badagnani.
