This is the second time Sohrab, the Green Voice of Iran’s Green Movement in NY, will be playing with Dawoud on (elecrtic) sitar and also with Ravish. The last time they played together was a year ago in the East Village (see photo below).

Regarding the music they will create and perform: (of course) it will be something special. Have you ever heard a sitar with a sax and a laptop? This is really a rare combination and instrumentation of music you will experience and listen to.

India meets Iran meets NY. Something unexpected is going to happen. The right music for people who are bored of mainstream and commercial music. You will like or dislike it.

Here is a video of Dawoud playing the sitar.
