overview

A fascinating program featuring two powerhouse voices: Bukharian Jewish singer Muhabbat Shamayeva, one of Uzbekistan's leading vocalists; and Middle Eastern singer and composer Galeet Dardashti, heir to a family tradition of distinguished Persian and Jewish musicians including her grandfather, the renowned classical singer, Yona Dardashti.

Shamayeva's diverse repertoire includes Central Asian classical shashmaqam, folk songs and popular estrada music. She's participated in Yo-Yo Ma's The Silk Road Project, and is the subject of two documentaries. The innovative Dardashti is especially known for multi-disciplinary projects, like The Naming, and her edgy all-female powerhouse Mizrahi ensemble, Divahn.

Dardashti's "sultry delivery spans international styles and clings to listeners long after the last round of applause." - Jerusalem Report
