Sima Bina, one of Iran's most distinguished folk and classical singers, makes a rare appearance in New York with the highly acclaimed Lian Ensemble. Together they will present a stunning blend of music influenced by Persian traditional and folk music. Evocative and exhilarating, the music presented is an authentic expression of a way of life and a rejection of rigid boundaries, preferring simplicity, authenticity, joy and hope. For one night at The Town Hall, hear Sima Bina and Lian Ensemble bring to life the wonder of Persian folk and classical music.
