Keeping Up With the Iranians

Keeping Up With the Iranians

Shortly after the Iranian Revolution in 1979, the new leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, banned music in Iran. Consequently, many artists relocated to Los Angeles to find new ways of making a living and pursuing their artistry in exile. This often happened through recordings of the musical genre dāmbuli dimbol since it was what people would dance to at mehmooni, social gatherings in people's homes. Keeping Up With the Iranians emerges from this music history by reconstructing a mehmooni starring world-famous singers Setareh and Poupak, number one charting pianist Fereshteh, and renowned choreographer Dancing Dina, visiting all the way from Los Angeles, California. To the rhythm of dāmbuli dimbol songs, they invite the audience to an unforgettable evening of dance, music, cake, and joy.

This event is part of tanzpol 2024.
