 GARNER Arts Center proudly presents Iranian vocalist and acclaimed performer, Katayoun Goudarzi. Goudarzi is known for maximizing the musical qualities of classical Persian poetry using different styles of singing and recitation and will be joined for an evening length performance by renowned artists Kevin Hayes (piano) and Sergio Krakowski (Pandeiro “Brazilian Tambourine”). The artists will perform in the brick lined Dye Works Space on February 24th, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the GARNER Historic District. The program will feature the beauty of Goudarzi’s distinctive melodic style while showcasing contemporary expressions of the cultural traditions from her native Tehran. The primary art form of Iran has long been poetry and Goudarzi has been a serious student of this rich tradition over the past three decades. These years of study have resulted in an accurate style of recitation and musical interpretation that blends an emotive rendition of the poetry with meticulous attention to the linguistic and lyrical integrity of the piece. Goudarzi, of the Saffron Ensemble, has an extensive repertoire of successful which include: "Dawning" with The Grammy award nominee Shujaat Husain Khan, saxophonist and composer, Tim Ries [of the Rolling Stones], Jazz Pianist and composer, Kevin Hays, and Tabla artist Abhiman Kaushal and more. Goudarzi is a perfectionist who pays meticulous attention to details. She's constantly experimenting in hopes of honoring the spirit and sense of the poetry she loves.” – Broadway World
