overview



Mohsen Namjoo and his ensemble, featuring the Italian female quartet Faraualla, will play songs from his new album, On the Bowstring of a Teardrop, in addition to many of his classic, most beloved songs. Namjoo is a songwriter, singer, music scholar, and setar (traditional Persian lute) player. His unique musical style resembles a patchwork of Persian classical poetry of Hafez, Rumi or Saadi with western music - namely rock, blues, and jazz. Seamlessly blending the classical with the modern, the ancient and the current, Namjoo has been hailed by The New York Times as the "Bob Dylan of Iran." He is a visionary artist and a true musical maverick.
