ZYRYAB - 8th Annual Jondo Festival in Vancouver

ZYRYAB - 8th Annual Jondo Festival - Vancouver
The 8th Annual Jondo festival is being celebrated in Vancouver. We attended last night ZYRYAB concert, a fusion of Flamenco and Persian Musical Traditions. It was a beautiful concert with flamenco and sama dances, songs in Spanish and Persian, music combining the flamenco guitars and instruments like the Setar and drums. We were also introduced to Rumi's poetry by Dr. Mendi Meshgini. ZYRYAB was the opening event of the Annual Jondo Festival, which runs until May 25.
