Diaspora Arts Connection

For the fourth year running, seven female vocalists from Iran, Lebanon, Vietnam, Kurdistan (Turkey), and the US come together with a group of exceptional international musicians to celebrate the female voice; suppressed, censored, and threatened in parts of the world. Join us for an online event of exciting music and solidarity for the female voice. This year’s event has been transformed into a video production in order to reach audiences despite the moratorium on live events in California and across the globe due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Saturday, January 16, 2021, 7:00 p.m.
Tickets: https://secure.thefreight.org/172/173

Co-presented with the storied Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, our lineup this year features (in alphabetical order) Mina Alali, Mai Khoii*, Rabbit Quinn (Leila Motaei), Evin Şah, Naima Shalhoub, and Mahsa Vahdat.

Our gifted Musical Director Erwin Khachikian returns to manage our stellar vocalists and musicians. The multi-talented musician and actress Naima Shalhoub will be our Master of Ceremonies. Once again, our Artistic Director Navid Ghaem Maghami will join our group alongside our Video Director & Editor Mohammad Talani. Camera: Vahid Zamani.

By Shaghayegh Cyrous
Single-channel Video in a loop, 04m33s

The Cycle is a single-channel video showcasing today's melancholy humans' life journeys, implying how history is rotating and in a cycle. How our individual and collective life have been destroyed and reborn over and over.
