    An Evening of Iranian Music with Negar Bouban

    Bay Area - Peninsula Thursday - May 19, 2011     07:30 PM

    Dear Friends,

    PSA proudly presents: An Evening of Iraninan Music with Negar Bouban.

    Negar Bouban is one of the true talents of Iranian music and has kindly accepted to have a solo Oud performance at Stanford during her short visit to the Bay Area. It is not quite often that PSA has the honor to host such admirable artists, we hope you do not miss the chance to attend this spectacular performance. Please look at the attached brochure for the event details.

    Born in Tehran in 1973, Negar Bouban studied at the faculty of Fine Arts, University of Tehran, earning an MA in Architecture with her design of Tehran’s future Conservatory. Focusing on special acoustic design, she concurrently studied music and musical acoustics, becoming interested in the principles of Iranian music of the past. Negar mastered the oud and Iranian Radif (a collection of old melodies handed down by masters to students throughout generations) and since 1994 has worked with numerous ensembles of Iranian Classical music. She has given over one hundred performances, including Fajr and Yas music festivals, and has made several recordings.

    Negar is also deeply involved with the art of improvisation, both in traditional Dastgah (Iranian Classical modal system) and in free improvisation on themes of various origins and modes. Her first solo oud album “Payaapey” (CONTINUOUS) was released in August 2008 and her second solo album (oud and vocals) “In Turn” was released in April 2011. She also holds a PhD in Art Research, with her dissertation on a comparative study of rhythm in Iranian music and literature.
