Music Band Takes Indian Stage

A joint music concert was held by Iranian music band ‘The Sound of the Wind’ and Indian ‘Telangana’ group in the Indian city of Hyderabad.
Local musicians performed with sitar (plucked stringed instrument) and tabla (membranophone percussion instrument) in the first part of the event, followed by the Iranian group, which performed both solo and duet ballads, and Persian traditional pieces, Honaronline reported.
A performance of the well-known piece ‘Saraye Omid’ (literally, the house of hope) by Iranian music master Mohammadreza Lotfi, was the finale. It received loud applause from the audience.
The program was organized by Iran’s Consulate General in Hyderabad.
Consul General Hassan Noorian, outlined the shared history and culture between the two countries. “We are eager to expand and strengthen bilateral relations through joint cultural activities and exchanges in cinema, music, poetry and photography.”
Harikrishna, head of the Department of Language and Culture of the state of Telangana, said India is keen to organize joint cultural events. “Bilateral cooperation in different fields will further help develop the rich historical and cultural background of the two sides.”
The Iranian band performed concerts (began July 23) in Hyderabad, Mysore and Bengaluru cities. Farhad Heidarian (group director and tar, setar player), Said Aghai (ney player), Ebrahim Alihosseini (Kamancheh player and violinist; Kamancheh is an Iranian bowed string instrument), Masood Salehabadi (percussionist) and Masood Alihosseini (vocalist) are members of the band.
