Join Shaho Andalibi, renowned Iranian singer and nay player, with Toronto-based bassist Scott Peterson for a night honouring the great Kurdish singer and musician Ali Asghar Kurdistani. Their legendary voice and unique style influenced Iranian-Kurdish traditional music as one of the first Kurdish singers recorded in Tehran in 1930. The power of Ali Asghar Kurdistani’s compositions continues with elements incorporated into this performance in light of the economic conditions and the tragic incident that happened in the south of Iran recently. The extensive background in Middle Eastern music that Andalibi and Peterson share promises a unique re-visioning of Ali Asghar Kurdistani’s music in dialogue with contemporary Iran.
Experimental Link Music Nights contemplates the Persian-Canadian experience by reinvigorating, re-exploring and re-imagining Persian traditional music within contemporary and cosmopolitan Toronto by inviting different musicians from the diaspora to collaborate and perform together. The series will explore connections between identity, culture, and musical creation with four concerts in its new season from December to March 2023.
Link Music Lab gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Canadian Heritage, Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council.
