Persian celebration

By Sonia Isaacs

THE Persian classical music ensemble AVA captivated the crowds at a sold out concert performance in Maleny on Saturday, February 17.
An appreciative audience of over 230 people packed into the Maleny Community Centre to enjoy an evening of Persian culture. Hosted by the Welcome to Maleny Refugee Advocacy Group, the evening featured an uplifting and hauntingly beautiful performance from the Iranian musicians, interspersed with classical Persian poetry and Sufi fusion dancing. The event provided a fascinating insight into the beauty and mysticism of Persian culture.
