Just One Breath: A musical meeting of Iran and America
Come celebrate the CD release of “Just One Breath” by Dan Rein.
Dan Rein sings the thousand-year-old poetry of Omar Khayyam in Persian and English.
Dan has studied Iranian traditional music for the last 25 years, and now has teamed up with some of the best Twin Cities musicians of American roots music. With the help of Iranian friends, he has created his own translation of this world famous, iconoclastic Persian poet.
Music was composed by Dan on dutar, the instrument that Khayyam would have heard. Singing in the original Persian, alternating with English gives a unique and rare access into this ancient, yet timely poetry.
This musical, poetic journey brings together American musicians and their instruments with Khayyam’s poetry and the ancient dutar to create a cultural meeting and a totally original adventure!
Opening act: Adam Kiesling, Liz Draper, and Mikkel Beckmen, performing old time American music
Come join us for a social hour 6 to 7 p.m. with appetizers provided by Gandhi Mahal Restaurant. $12 – $15
