I am excited to let you know of a great upcoming event in the San Francisco Bay Area. On Saturday, October 23, 2010, Iranian.com will present a fantastic performance by the Saeid Shanbehzadeh Ensemble at San Francisco’s Herbst Theater. Saeid Shanbehzadeh presents his pretty unique brand of Southern Iran Boushehri music, a music of rhythm and color which is bold, exciting, and delightful. He is accompanied by his son, Naghib, and Habib Meftah Boushehri on percussion. People outside California have had a chance to see Saeid and his ensemble perform over the past several years. We will be lucky this Fall to see him take his wonderful music on his first US Tour.
If you live in this area, please mark your calendars for Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. for what promises to be a fantastic performance. (There are other delightful surprises in store for that night. Stay tuned!)
If you don’t live in this area, won’t you consider joining us for an Iranian.com gathering around the concert? If you are interested in making the trip, the fabulous Iranian.com volunteers of Northern California will look into getting a reasonable rate on rooms, etc. Let us know!
I leave you with a few clips of a Saeid Shanbehzadeh Ensemble performances at the Louvre Museum in Paris and at the Orient Festival in Munich. Habib Meftah Boushehri and Naghib Shanbehzadeh play the percussion. I hope you enjoy their music and very exciting visual presentation. Please plan to come to the concert if you can! We will be along with more information and announcements soon!
