Persian Classical/ Cuban Jazz
Classically trained in traditional Persian singing under the ‘Radif’ system with prominent Iranian vocalist Hengameh Akhavan. This age-old oral transmission from master to pupil accesses the deep cultural tradition of Iran’s classical music.
It is said that gypsies from India passed through Iran and the Middle East en-route to Spain on a
long and circuitous journey centuries ago, thus shaping the rich culture of flamenco. Tara Tiba’s secodn album, OMID,is
a playful exploration of the musical traditions shared by Iran and Cuba after the Spanish took Middle
Eastern soul to Latin America.
