Mojdeh asked me to post my thoughts on the concert last night, Persian music with Hamed Nikpay, Ananda Lahari, and our very own Drew Plant.
The music was wonderful and different, and I enjoyed it very much. There were several Persian instruments that Hamed and Ananda played, and it was fun to watch them play — their hands moving on the instruments, and their faces following each other. They had not practiced all together before, and it was exciting to watch them create the music right in front of us, weaving the music together so beautifully and expertly. The concert was sold out, with 100 people, including some YiY folks.
Many thanks to Mojdeh for organizing and bringing this to YiY.
