MAGIC CARPET SESSIONS | Adventurous, intimate & crossing borders with music from around the world!
Mohamad Mehdi Behrad and Pouriya Jaberi ★ Magic Carpet Sessions
Mohamad Mehdi Behrad, known as Delnava (meaning Lighted Heart in Persian), embarked on a lifelong journey with the NEY, an ancient Persian instrument cherished by shepherds in the lush forests of Northern Iran from the tender age of 10. Now for the first time in 60 years performing outside of Iran on a mystical journey that transcends time and culture.
The NEY, an instrument rooted in Persian mysticism, resonates with secrets of transformation and awakening. Its connection with cosmic harmony and essence reflects the four elements, influencing human consciousness. The NEY hollow reed grants space for the human breath, weaving tales of pain, joy, and more into haunting melodies. Beyond boundaries of ego, the NEY becomes the most human of instruments, fostering profound connections between souls.
This wonderful Daf percussionist accompanying Mohamad Mehdi Behrad learned playing Daf from his older brother who was a highly accomplished player in Iran. Besides being a percussionist, Pouriya also plays the bendir & Tanboor and is an instrument maker.
