Transcendental Showcase @ Rhizome DC

October 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Rumput with Falsa and Kamyar Arsani

Falsa performs 14th century Sufi music, described as ” the cure for alienation” and “music that’s not about means to ends but about meaning and transcendence. Umer Piracha on Vocals, accompanied by Siddharth Ashokkumar on Carnatic Violin, Tom Deis on Guitar/Harmonium, Paul Arendt on Lead Guitar, and Greg Foran on Percussion. The effect of listening to Falsa is to be transported both inwards and across centuries of joys, sorrows and longings.

Kamyar Arsani is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter born and raised in Tehran, Iran. Kamyar’s musical mission is to spread cultural awareness and unity by mixing contemporary musical trends with traditional Persian folk music. Kamyar has spent over 20 years performing and researching the daf and its roots. Kamyar’s songs and performances are very much inspired by the people of Iran and their history of struggle and protest.

$10 suggested donation.
