Pouya Mahmoodi, Habib Meftah & guests – Live in concert

Pouya Mahmoodi

Arts Canteen proudly presents Pouya Mahmoodi پویا محمودی and Guests as part of EFG London Jazz Festival.

Iranian guitarist Pouya Mahmoodi plays a fusion of Persian classical music and jazz. Whether integrating the influences from West African music in the south of Iran or the inter-relation with Afghan and Indian music in the east and south-east of Iran, Mahmoodi's music is driven and spirited with urban life and its fragmented experience.

His music gives a lyrical voice to the contemporary situation of a culture processing its recent history which is inseparable from its ethnically diverse way of life and a faith in spontaneity, storytelling, and improvisation.

'Mahmoodi has a mild-mannered, steady voice with an elongated lilt and a gentleness that makes him sound as if he’s singing to himself and you happen to be accidentally overhearing him.' - Pop Matters

Doors open at 8.00pm and the event starts at 8.30pm.

Seated places are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.

This event is produced by Arts Canteen in association with EFG London Jazz Festival & Rich Mix London
