A major event this weekend presented by our friends at Link Music Lab brings the one and only Mohsen Namjoo back to Toronto. Saturday’s concert set in the gorgeous acoustics of St. Andrew’s Church has the singer, songwriter and provocateur teaming up with Faraualla, a remarkable quartet of Italian women, who add an an infusion of a cappella to the sound. The night showcases Mohsen’s recent album ‘On the String of a Tear’s Bow’ that traces the journey of a corpse from Mongolia to East Europe – powerful stuff no doubt. Then a second set of Mohsen’s favourites adds to the evening’s appeal. For our valued newsletter readers we are contesting a pair of tickets.

Speaking of great artists from Iran, October 21st we present Shahram and Hafez Nazeri at the Sony Centre with Link Music Lab. It’s the first time in four years that the father and son perform in town. One of the most significant singers and beloved artists in Persian music, Shahram was among the first to bring the poetry of Rumi to Western audiences. Fittingly his son pioneered East-West crossover music with the Rumi Symphony Project, which will be revisited and revised for this special event. Watch “Existence: Life” for a taste.
