The Ahl-e Haqq culture in Iran and the Alevi culture in Turkey are both "heterodox", sufism related religious/social traditions. They share a surprising number of elements (beliefs, rituals, etc.) on which relatively few studies have been produced up to our day.

In times of acute divisions, firiction and international challenges, such superb musical meetings can actively contribute to overcoming stereotypical thought, thus promoting a better undrestanding of cultures which appear to be "obscure" and "distant" to the majority of Western audiences.

Norooz - celebrating the Persian New Year

Radif at GEHThis year's Norooz celebration marking the Persian New Year, one of the most ancient living traditions in the world, coincides with the two-week festivities' final day, Sizdah-beh-dar. On this day it is traditional for Iranian families to leave their homes and head for the countryside, in one of the world's largest national outings. The day is celebrated with music and dance throughout the country, with food, sweets and fresh tea brewing in samovars.

Tonight's programme is a symbolic representation of this ancient event which has survived the test of many culturally challenging years.

Traditional music and dance, bagpipes, sorna and dohol, and a daf ensemble make up just some of the exciting line up, and there's also a foyer celebration with audience participation to add to the evening's celebratory mood.
