Galeet Dardashti and Divahn

March 29 , 3:00 pm

Galeet Dardashti and Divahn have gained an international following with exciting renditions of traditional and original Sephardi/Mizrahi Jewish songs. “Divahn,” a word common to Hebrew, Persian, and Arabic, means a collection of songs or poetry. Through its music, Divahn underscores the common ground between diverse Middle Eastern cultures and religions.

Galeet is the first woman to continue her family’s tradition of distinguished Persian and Jewish musicianship. Her grandfather (Younes Dardashti) was one of the most highly acclaimed singers of Persian classical music in Iran and her father, Farid Dardashti, is a renowned cantor (formerly at Beth El in New Rochelle). She has earned a reputation as one of the most innovative performers of Middle Eastern and Jewish music today. According to the Jerusalem Report, Dardashti’s “sultry delivery spans international styles and clings to listeners long after the last round of applause.”

The other performers in Divahn — Eleanor Norton (cello and vocals), Elizabeth Pupo-Walker (percussion and vocals), Sejai Kukadia (tabla and vocals), and Megan Gould (violin and vocals), are all versatile and exciting performers in many different musical genres.

Tickets are $36 and $20 for students.

Sponsorship opportunities are available.
