Hossein Omoumi and Friends

Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Irvine Barclay Theatre

The main foundation of classical Persian music is classical Persian poetry, one of the most ancient bodies of literature in the world. The music on this program is based on the poems of Rumi, Hâfez and Attâr, whose poetry is the vehicle through which they expressed their philosophy and approach to life. Inevitably, the music that has evolved based on this poetry is also deeply spiritual and mystical.
