I’ve seen many of you at The Rafael Theater this year while attending the opening of some amazing music documentaries, such as: Twenty Feet From Stardom, Muscle Shoals, and Ain’t In For My Health (Levon Helm story). I am a huge fan of the documentaries of soulful musicians, and want to share some of the very rare music documentaries I’ve accumulated over the years. These are films that were produced in the same vein as the above-mentioned films. I have gone to great lengths to acquire some stellar movies that were never shown in a theater, on TV, or released to the public, for one reason or another... These films have won numerous awards from major film festivals all over the globe, were made by world-renown film- makers, but have never seen the light of day! So, in the interest of building community through music, I am inviting the community to “Music Documentary Night” at The Dance Palace Church Space.

Fariba Bogzaran and Kim Rosen, poetry & recitations
Deghani brothers, Sina and Samandar on Persian Tombak and Daf, with Rishii Chowdhury on Indian Tabla, and Tobias Roberson on Flamenco Cajon

The evening offers a special experience of sound, rhythm and poetry with a group of innovative artists.  The moving from formless to form through music and poetry is the spirit of the evening.  There will be solo performances of Indian and Persian drumming, together with a combination of cross- cultural rhythms and improvisation. The evening will be filled with recitations of mystical poetry: Rumi will be recited in Persian and in English.  The audience will learn how to recite one of Rumi's poems in Farsi.   This evening is choreographed by Fariba Bogzaran to bring together the East and the West through the arts of music and poetry.
