Celebrating Nowruz with Dastan ensemble with Iraj Bastami, Shahram Nazeri & Ensemble Alizadeh

Following the special Namashoun Nowruz show, we will continue celebration of Nowruz and Persian culture with Dastan Ensemble's Booye Nowruz from 1992, I believe their first album. On this album they are joined by the late vocalist Iraj Bastami. We also hear from my favourite Persian singer, the great Shahram Nazeri, performing a piece for Nowruz and Kurdish Folksongs with Ensemble Alizadeh, led by Hossein Alizadeh who will be in Ottawa on April 12th. A big thank you to Janice for generously loaning a few minutes of her show to finish mine!

Thanks David, for continuing the Persian theme. Kinda figured you probably would... Think I saw Dastan Ensemble years ago at some theater in UofO. Totally hypnotic.

Ah that's too bad :) wont she be playing somewhere closer to home? It's also fun to hear about concerts right after they passed, I just found out Shahram Nazeri was in Montreal 2 weeks ago...

Nope. Feist's "solo" tour is very limited, and all quite intimate venues, all on right-hand coast.

Oh fun, hopefully the weather will be a bit warmer by then!
