      EVENT DETAILS
      Echoes of Silence: Hengameh Akhavan in Concert

      Part of Women in Music at Southbank Centre

      Setting the benchmark for classical Persian music, influential singer Hengameh Akhavan gives a rare, emotionally charged performance.

      She emerged in Iran in the late 1970s, following a televised performance with popular classical musicians Mohammad Reza Lotfi and Bijan Kamkar.

      Following the 1979 Iranian revolution and subsequent ban on public performances by female singers, Akhavan remains one of the country’s most celebrated women vocalists.

      Her last official recordings make for stirring listening.

      Challenging the odds to dedicate herself to her art, she was a shoo-in for Nava’s series dedicated to Iran’s female singers, Echoes of Silence.


      Cost: 20.00 to 40.00
