Homayoun Shajarian & Pournazeri Brothers
Homayoun Shajarian is one of the foremost classical Persian singers of his generation, and a superb instrumentalist. His collaboration with Pournazeri brothers for last decade has caused something of sensation in Iranian traditional music.
After a successful Canada tour in 2018, they are coming back on stage of Meridian Hall (Sony Centre) on Friday December 6, 2019 to perform a mix of classical Persian and Western music, arranged and composed by brothers Tahmoures and Sohrab Pournazeri.
Non-Farsi speakers should cast aside any fears of a language barrier: Homayoun’s dramatic, operatic delivery, combined with his ensemble’s urgent percussion and strings, bears cross-cultural appeal.
