A message from our perfomers: “This special performance of Classical Persian music is entitled, ‘Clouds come towards you’.  It is a tribute to the people of Iran, as a symbol of our heartfelt compassion and anguish in these turbulent times.”

With many thanks to Making Tracks , with whom Shahab performed in 2022, for making images available for the promotion of this event.
