Pooria’s Log

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Pooria Pournazeri offers a musical journey into the heart of the poetry of the great 12th-century Persian scholar Omar Khayyam. This concert draws its musical influences from Iran to Kurdistan and features the vocal stylings of either Raha Yousefi or Habib Hoseini resonating with Pooria’s tanbur, Reza Abaee’s gheychak, Sheila Hannigan’s cello and Éric Breton’s percussion.
