Kazakh Folk Performance to Mark Yalda

Niavaran Cultural Center in north Tehran will celebrate Yalda, the Persian solstice, with a performance by Kazakh folk band Saryarka. Slated for December 21, at 6pm, the concert is organized under the auspices of the Institute for Promotion of Contemporary Art affiliated to the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, Honaronline reported. Yalda is an annual nocturnal celebration in Iran. It will be observed this year from the night of December 21, which is the longest night of the year, well into the early hours of December 22. The longest and darkest night of the year is a time when friends and family gather together to celebrate and read poetry (especially Hafez) until well after midnight. Fruits and nuts are eaten and pomegranates and watermelons are particularly significant.  The red color in these fruits symbolizes the crimson hues of dawn and glow of life. The poems of Divan-e Hafez, which can be found in the bookcases of most Iranian families, are read or recited on various occasions such as this festival and Nowruz. Tickets for the  Kazakh concert are available at Iranconcert.com. Niavaran Cultural Center is located at the northern end of Pasdaran Street, across from Niavaran Park.
