‘Equinox - Homayoun Shajarian’

19 Mar.'22
- 20:00

In Iran, the spring equinox is celebrated with 'Noruz', a Persian New Year festival. This tradition is some 5,000 years old and has recently been recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site. For the occasion, Klarafestival and Bozar have invited Iran's most famous singer: the Tehran-born singer Homayoun Shajarian has a passion for Iranian classical music that is matched by his love of pop and rock music. He owes his musical education not only to the Tehran Conservatory but even more to his father, Mohammad-Reza Shajarian, a master of Persian traditional music with a distinctive singing style, who performed for many years as a tombak player and singer. Homayoun Shajarian released his first solo album in 2003 and has since released some 20 CDs. His music combines exceptional sophistication with an emotional intensity.
