Description

World Music Institute presents
NOV 11, Sunday, 7pm
MAHSA VAHDAT & MIGHTY SAM McCLAIN
Persia meets the blues!
Mighty Sam McClain, a Louisiana red-clay soul-bluesman, and Mahsa Vahdat, a classical Persian songstress, perform duets—singing across cultures, traditions, languages, genres, scales and rhythms. In true blues fashion, McClain has run the gamut from being homeless to being nominated for a Grammy Award; Vahdat has served as a voice for women throughout Iran. The two pull from their personal struggles, intertwining English and Farsi lyrics to express yearning, hope and a quest for freedom. They’ll perform selections from their new CD A Deeper Tone of Longing: Love Duets Across Civilizations (Valley Entertainment).

ROULETTE, 509 Atlantic Ave.
$25 / WMI Friends $20
