Late Night Jazz - London - Sep 29,12
Festival of Arts presents The “Late Night Jazz” Concert - In keeping with its mission and tradition of presenting quality and exceptional cultural events to heighten the awareness of the audiences of the rich and diverse cultural legacies of Iran, once again, Festival of Arts takes the lead in inviting one of unique music and dance ensembles for an encore performance to London. The leading artist is the ever fervent singer/dancer Saeeed Shanbezadeh who would be performing at Camden Center on Sept. 29, 2012 in London. Shanbezadeh who was invited to UK for the first time by the Festival of Arts last year, is being invited back again as the Festival recognizes the cultural significance and genuineness of his music and dance which have their roots from his birth place of province of Bushehr, perched on the edge of the Persian Gulf in Southeastern Iran. Being the cross road on the Persian Gulf, the music of Bushehr is a culmination of influences of Persian, Arabic, African and Indian traditions presented in a dynamic performance by Shanbezadeh with the reedy sound of his goatskin bagpipe (Neyanban), and rhythms of percussion giving the music a Raggaen sound of danceable beats. He performance often draws audiences inexorably into his musical world making it an enchanting interactive exchange much raved by the patrons. Accompanying ensemble include: First Part: 8:00pm till 10:30pm (Traditional Persian Music & Jazz) Saeed Shanbehzadeh: Ney Anban, Neyjoti, Voval, Dance; Naghib Shanbezadeh: Zarb & Tempo ; Habib Meftah Boushehri: Dammam, Tempo,Vocal, Flute; Mathieu Donarier: Saxophones ; Manu Codjia: Electric Guitar; John Quitzke: Drums; Sabine Novel: Vocal - Second Part: 11:00pm till late (Dance all night Music) Further Info: www.FestivalOfArts.co.uk - Facebook: www.facebook.com/FestivalOfArts, More Info: 0044 (0)7738995405 .

Playing Sun. Aug. 5th At 1 pm Laemmle's Music Hall in Beverly Hills .
n 1842 the 11 year-old heir to the Persian throne, Nasseredin Mirza, received a photographic camera from Queen Victoria of England. In the following decades he documented his life: his many wives, his jesters and clowns, his glorious palaces, and his jewels and treasures. As such he revealed to the public eye, what the public eye never was supposed to see. Through animated sequences and photos taken by Nasseredin Shah and his court, the film depicts the rivalry and intrigues within the harem, the corruption, the secret murders, the political power struggle, the Shah's obsession with a beautiful calico cat, as well as Persia's troubled relation to Europe.
