Hani Mojtahedy: Melodies from the Middle East

Each year Hellensmusic brings an exceptional artist and musician from a different genre to open up our ears to new sounds.

Hani Mojtahedy, the Kurdish singer-songwriter, with her charisma and beauty, has been a voice for women, and for her people for years. She comes to play with four great classical musicians, that you have grown to know through the years, in a novel challenge for Hellensmusic. She will perform themes from her work, passing from women rights to the misfortunes of history, from love and happiness to tragedy and mourning.

Truly a romantic evening for anyone of any age who loves a haunting melody, a gorgeous voice, and an outstanding artist’s delight in sharing her gifts!
