Join us for this free and exciting music event at Southbank Centre on Friday 20 March 2015, 17:30, with music by two Iranian-British bands.
The night before Nowruz, British-Iranian bands will play two improvisational sets using jazz and other styles to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Southbank Centre in London.
This event is held as part of the Southbank Centre’s Friday Tonic series and the British Council’s UK-Iran Season of Culture.
With performances by two bands who each represent the musical links between Iran and the UK, including both British and Iranian musicians, the event will be an upbeat celebration of the end of the old year and the beginning of the new. The bands will perform pieces inspired by Iranian music and enriched by improvisation with modern influences. We invite you to spend your Friday night with us, celebrating Nowruz and enjoying some great live music.
