EFG London Jazz Festival: Pouya Mahmoodi and guests

Wednesday 21 November
From £12.00
to £15.00
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member

Iranian guitarist Pouya Mahmoodi plays a fusion of Persian classical music and jazz. Whether integrating the influences from West African music in the south of Iran or the inter-relation with Afghan and Indian music in the east and south-east of Iran, Mahmoodi's music is driven and spirited with urban life and its fragmented experience. His music gives a lyrical voice to the contemporary situation of a culture processing its recent history which is inseparable from its ethnically diverse way of life and a faith in spontaneity, storytelling, and improvisation.

'Mahmoodi has a mild-mannered, steady voice with an elongated lilt and a gentleness that makes him sound as if he’s singing to himself and you happen to be accidentally overhearing him.' - Pop Matters
