Biography:
The Shanbehzadeh Ensemble, with its driving rhythms, trance-inducing songs, and striking hip-swinging dances, offers an opportunity to experience the fascinating music and dance of the southern Iranian province of Bushehr. A cultural crossroads for centuries, Bushehr is situated along the ancient trade routes of the Persian Gulf and has been influenced by Sufi, Persian, Arab, African and Indian traditions. The ensemble is led by multi-instrumentalist and dancer Saeid Shanbehzadeh, who trances his ancestry to Zanzibar in East Africa, and includes his son Naghib Shanbehzadeh and Habib Meftah-Bushehri. Their alluring instruments include neyanban (double-reed bagpipe), neydjofti (double flute), dammam (double-headed drum), zarbetempo (goblet drum), and boogh (goat’s horn). Shanbehzadeh was one of the highlights of New York's globalFEST in 2009.
