ARSHID AZARINE TRIO
Door Open: 8.00pm
The London Iranian Film Festival presents ARSHID AZARINE TRIO (Arshid Azarine, Habib Meftah Boushehri and Hervé de Ratuld) with vocalist Ariana Vadafari at Greenwood Theatre.
Arshid Azarine Trio is an exciting Paris-based band, led by Iranian pianist Arshid Azarine. This particularly united trio is made of musicians from different horizons. Arshid's melodies between jazz chords and Persian scales, peacefully settles on a bed of Afro-Iranian rhythms played by inventive percussionist from southern Iran Habib Meftah Boushehri (Trio Joubran, Titi Robin, Niyaz, Shambezadeh Ensemble) and supported by the transe and groove of bass player Hervé de Ratuld (Ousmane Toure, Cerrone).
Their new project "7 Djan" is inspired by 12th Century poem "the Conference of the Birds", written by Farid ud-Din Attar Neyshaaboori, a well-known Iranian Sufi poet. Arshid Azarine Trio's music wonders brilliantly through diverse sonic landscapes, meditative and beautifully melodic.
The band has performed in many prestigious venues and festivals. Their album “7 Djan” recorded in 2014 is set to be released on November 15, 2015.
