Join us for a night of reimagined Persian music from Hayiran Ensemble,  a quintet featuring Shaho Andalibi, Amir Koushkani, and Farzad AttarJafari. Inspired by the diversity of Iran’s regional music, the ensemble fuses traditional, folkloric, spiritual, and modern styles to create a transcendent new sound, united with Sufi whirling.


The ensemble takes its name from a stage in the Sufi spiritual journey. Meaning bewilderment, hayiran comes with years of training and is a type of ecstasy that is not be talked about, only experienced.  


Hayiran Ensemble is comprised of Shaho Andalibi (ney/vocals), Amir Koushkani (tar/vocals), Naghmeh Farahmand (percussion), Nima Haghighi (cello), and Farzad AttarJafari (whirling dervish).


Presented in collaboration with Rumi Canada, this performance is part of our 2019/20 season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performing arts in celebrating diversity, preserving culture, and spurring social change.
