Shab e Shehr
A Night of Persian Poetry, Food and Song
Tuesday 24 September, 7pm
To celebrate the exhibition by artist Siah Armajani we invite you to a night of Persian poetry and song.
As aspects of Armajani’s work include text and paper, members of London’s Iranian community will come together to share poems in Persian, both reciting their own and other iconic poems by the likes of Hafez and Rumi. Iran is a country where poetry is very much part of everyday life, the delivery of which, for even those without Persian language, is as sonorous and as rhythmic as music itself.
Reciting will be Bahman Forsi and Afshin Babazadeh.
Hosted by Six Pillars with the support of Manouchehr Hosseinpour as anchor.
