You don’t need to be Iranian to appreciate the classical music of Homayoun Shajarian, Tahmoures Pournazeri and Sohrab Pournazeri.
Homayoun Shajarian is one of the foremost classical Persian singers of his generation, and a superb instrumentalist. His collaboration with Pournazeri brothers for last decade has caused something of sensation in Iranian traditional music.
After a successful Canada tour in 2018, they are coming back on stage of Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Friday December 13, 2019 to perform a mix of classical Persian and Western music, arranged and composed by brothers Tahmoures and Sohrab Pournazeri.
Non-Farsi speakers should cast aside any fears of a language barrier: Homayoun’s dramatic, operatic delivery, combined with his ensemble’s urgent percussion and strings, bears cross-cultural appeal.
