MAAD Ensemble (Shno Ahmadi • vocal - Pedram Shahlai • kamanche et al) – Yalda - a Mesopotamian Christmas Night

Saturday 16 December 2017 16:00 - 17:00 The German Church

What happens in other cultures during our Christmas holiday? Shab-e Yalda (Yalda-night) is a Persian-Kurdish ceremony celebrated during winter solstice, the longest and darkest night of the year, with links to the European Christmas roots. Yalda, meaning "birth", is a family and friends get together where traditional music, poem reading and dancing play an important role. Do not miss this different and exotic opening of Christmas Edition with MAAD Ensemble - (in)directly from Mesopotamia!
