"Sound: The Encounter - New Music from Iran and Syria" at the Freer Gallery
Iranian instrumentalist and dancer Saeid Shanbehzadeh, a virtuoso performer on the rarely heard Persian bagpipe (neyanban), returns to the Freer with a new program co-created with Syrian saxophonist Basel Rajoub. Joined by Iranian percussionist Nagib Shanbehzadeh and guest artist Kenan Adnawi on 'ud, they premiere a collection of new music and jazz-influenced takes on folk traditions. Saeid Shanbehzadeh augments the neyanban with Persian flute (neyjoti) and horn (boogh), while Rajoub alternates his saxophone with the single-reed duclar. Presented in collaboration with the Aga Khan Music Initiative.
