Courtesy of Lewisham Cllr Mike Harris, Brockley Central has two tickets to "In the Mirror of Wine", a one-off performance on Sunday night between Index on Censorship award winning Mahsa Vahdat (a celebrated Iranian singer) and Norwegian guitarist Knut Reiersrud. The event will be at the new Free Word Centre in Farringdon.
Cllr Harris explains:
Mahsa Vahdat, winner of the Index on Censorship/Freemuse award 2010, is a celebrated singer who is well known throughout Europe. Ironically, in Iran, where Mahsa lives, she is not able to perform because singing by females is banned according to the laws of the Islamic Republic.
In a one-off London performance with Norwegian guitarist Knut Reiersrud, this is a rare opportunity to hear Mahsa present a concert of songs based on the classical poems of Hafez and Rumi. The singer has developed her own style based on the Persian vocal tradition which blends well with blues man Knut Reiersrud. The musicians will be joined by Erik Hillestad who will recite selected verses from the Sufi poems.
If you'd like to be entered in the draw for the tickets, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm on Saturday, September 18th and we'll pick a winner at random.
