San Francisco World Music Festival
September 26, 2005 - October 16, 2005
Genre: World

The San Francisco World Music Festival 2005 will celebrate its Sixth Anniversary with an exciting gathering of some of the most interesting musicians in the world.

The centerpiece of Festival 2005 is a specially commissioned world premiere work called NOWRUZ PROJECT, which will premiere on October 2 as an international music experiment and artistic statement for global peace. This evening will present traditional and newly composed music, poetry, and film, featuring Azerbaijani pianist Chingiz Sadykhov, Azerbaijani kamancheh soloist Imamyar Hasanov, Afghani dutar and rubab player Aziz Herawi, Persian ney master Hossein Omoumi, Persian tar player Ashkan Ghafouri, Kurdish vocalist Ozden Oztoprak, and composer Ross Daly; Kurdish filmmaker Nizamettin Aric; and Kurdish community leader and poet/singer Mustafa Kart. All of these artists represent a variety of traditions, nationalities, ethnicities and disciplines. The binding thread in bringing them together is the observance of the vernal equinox or Nowruz, whose pre-Islamic origins are embraced in different ways throughout the Middle East and Central Asia.Taking place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, this concert helps to promote San Francisco as a world center for international music collaborations.

Other Festival Concert Highlights include: WOMEN SINGERS OF THE WORLD, featuring a diverse group of female vocalists from several countries and traditions; ROSS DALY & ENSEMBLE, musicians from Crete making their San Francisco debut; DONA ROSA & ENSEMBLE a blind Fado singer from Portugal making her San Francisco debut; MASTER WANG WEI CHINESE & WORLD PERCUSSION CONCERT; WORLD MUSIC DJs & INSTRUMENTAL MASTERS, a commissioned evening featuring Bay Area DJs and instrumentalists from around the globe; and more....
