Persian Mystic Songs from Omar Khayyam and Farid al-Din Attar

Persian Mystic Songs from Omar Khayyam and Farid al-Din Attar Online

Hear of love and longing as presented by the great Persian Sufi poets Omar Khayyam and Farid al-Din Attar in a performance by Sahar Mohammadi. Born in Tehran, Mohammadi is considered one of the most talented young performers of Sufi music today. Her powerful voice, coupled with a deep knowledge of Persian lyrical poetry, is widely praised for offering a carefully nuanced and highly original interpretation of classical Sufi music. Following the performance, our interim deputy director, chief curator and the Ebrahimi Family Curator of Persian, Arab, and Turkish Art Massumeh Farhad will speak about Sufi poetry, music, and painting.
