Vesal Ensemble - Eivat

Full review to follow. The Harbourfront was bustling for this biennial celebration of Iranian arts and culture, with a lot of food and music to choose from. I dropped in on this local group, which specializes in Persian classical music, to see them perform a selection of traditional Kurdish songs. It was a wonderful performance from the seven-piece ensemble, and another reminder of the immense cultural richness we enjoy in Toronto, and now they're on my list of bands to seek out to hear again. You can get a further taste of this band's music on their youtube channel, or check out their half-dozen albums.
