Small World Music presents the fourth of the five-concert SOUNDS OF PERSIA Series. One of Iran’s top singers, ALIREZA GHORBANI, will perform at the Enwave Theatre along with the Shiraz Ensemble, as part of the monthly series of performances showcasing the breadth and beauty of music from Iran and its diaspora.

THE SHIRAZ ENSEMBLE includes some of the best young instrumentalists from Iran and Canada playing classical Persian music as well as original compositions as inspired by the passion for Persian art music repertoire. The artists all benefit from a very strong background of musical training and diverse experience and include Saeed Kamjoo (Kamanche, a bowed spike fiddle), Pedram Khavarzamini (Tombak, a goblet drum), Araz Salek (Tar, a long-necked Lute), Shahin Fayyaz (Rubab, an Afghani short-necked lute), and Nima Rahmani (Santour, a Persian wooden-hammered dulcimer).
