AVA Ensemble at UCSD presents: Shahin Najafi - A Review of Iran's Protest Music.
Shahin Najafi has become one of the foremost contemporary Iranian musicians around the globe. His music contains a wide spectrum of lyrics pertaining to political and social issues. This protest music, so to speak, has made him a highly controversial figure, becoming one of the few individuals in history to be issued a fatwa by Iranian clerics. In Germany, he carries on his music of protest from where he left off in Iran, using pen and music as a reflection of his political and social ideas. And for the very first time to come to the United States, he will share an evening with you, to review Iran's protest music, at the University of California, San Diego.
THIS EVENT IS FREE OF CHARGE TO PUBLIC.
HOWEVER ANY KIND OF DONATION IS WELCOME.
*TALK WILL BE IN PERSIAN
** NO PHOTOGRAPHY OR RECORDING APPARATUS OF ANY KIND IS ALLOWED INSIDE THE EVENT VENUE, IN CONSIDERATION OF PRIVACY OF OUR GUESTS.
