Homay and Mastan Ensemble

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm Saturday, June 15., Saturday June 15 | $45-$85.
Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta St.
 
Despite being banned from performing in his homeland since 2009, Iranian Parvaz Homay—a singer, songwriter, poet and player of the setar, a Persian lute—has been winning worldwide acclaim for his modern update on the Persian chameh soraei (singer-songwriter-arranger) tradition. Still in his early 30s, Homay has recently expanded his ambitions to create an original operetta (with orchestra) and a new project dedicated to advocating for the environment and wildlife. His sextet of master Persian instrumentalists (on tar lute, ney flute, kamancheh fiddle, percussion and the zingy santur, a hammered dulcimer) will play plaintive original and traditional folkloric music.
