Carpet Concert and Persian Rugs in Los Angeles: A Sold Out Event
A second sold out Carpet Concert was held at Craft & Folk Art Museum here in Los Angeles last night. Rowan Storm performed vocal and played dayereh and Daff (framed drum). Morteza Yadollahi played Persian tar and tanbur and Faraz Minooei played santur. It was a lovely evening. It was read on the flyer:
Leave your shoes and cares at the door ... Lounge on beautiful handmade carpets ... Be transported into the mystical realm of Persian music!
At the beginning, Maryna Hrushetska the Director of the Museum welcomed every body and then Rowan briefly talked about the program. The event began at 7:00 pm after the reception of Persian sweet, tea and appetizers which were provided downstairs in the front yard of the museum.
Rowan sang few songs and several poems of Khayam, a very famous Iranian poet. This lady is full of energy and love.
Holly Jerger worked tirelessly on the past and this program. Several other staff and volunteers also worked hard to make this event a success. We thank them all. By providing the carpets, I played a very small and tiny part in this wonderful event. I had many guests probably around 20, all of whom enjoyed the concert.
