A celebration of the festival of Nowruz

The “Voice of the Santur” concert series was launched by santur virtuoso Peyman Heydarian in July 2010 at the School of Oriental and African Studies [SOAS, University of London] and has visited different cities including Padova, Venice, Athens, Cambridge, Oxford, Hong Kong and Edinburgh since then.

The santur originated in Iran and is played in different musical traditions. The “Voice of the Santur” programme is a bridge between different cultures and contributes to understandings of people from other cultures.

Today, you will hear a programme of Persian, Kurdish and Azari music in celebration of Nowruz, the ancient New Year’s Eve for these cultures.

This concert is organised in association with with 30 Bird as part of Junctures², Ahbab Festival and Cambridge Junction.
