Istanbul to Host Iranian-Turkish Singers

Iranian vocalist Kamran Rasoolzadeh will join Turkish singer Murat Kekilli to perform a duet in Istanbul.
The two artists will soon take the stage at the Istanbul Congress Hall located in city center, which can accommodate up to 3,000 people and is one of the most modern and luxurious halls in Europe, hosting top musicians, reports Honaronline.
Organized by the Music Office of the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, the event is an initiative towards bilateral artistic relations between the two countries, Rasoolzadeh said.
“Music is a common language among nations,” he said, and hoped that his performance with Kekilli will be an opportunity to introduce Iranian music to the world.
Pointing to his acquaintance with Iranian music style, Kekilli said: “Years ago, the Persian lyric ‘I’ll die tonight’ was sent to me by Rasoolzadeh, who I later found is a vocalist and composer.” Kekilli agreed to compose a melody for the lyric and the result was the duet song with the same title.
“I’ve listened to various Iranian music tracks composed by the Iranian Music Forum,” Kekilli said, adding that there is great potential in the rich music of Iranian musicians.
The event, with the official permit of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, is financed by the private sector. This is the first duet performance of Iranian and Turkish vocalists to be staged in Istanbul.
Rasoolzadeh, 38, is a poet, composer and vocalist. His first album ‘Bi Saranjam’ (literally, pointless) was released in 2008. Also, his poetry collection has been published by Morvarid publishing house.
