Based in Los Angeles, the Liän Ensemble is a group of performers and composers who perform mystical Persian music. Participation in ACTA 's Traditional Arts Development Program will allow the Liän Ensemble to partner with Professor Fatemeh Keshavarz to produce a live presentation that combines mystical poetry and music. The project will enhance public awareness regarding the specific artistic interplay of poetry and music, and the unique role it plays in Persian culture. The presentation will feature the lyric poetry of two influential mystics of the 13 th century, Farid al-din ‘Attar and Jalal al-Din Rumi.

Professor Keshavarz who hails from Washington University in St. Louis has published numerous articles and translations of the work of both poets. The presentation will combine recitation of the poems accompanied with the musical compositions of the Liän Ensemble. Based in Los Angeles, The Lian Ensemble is a group of virtuoso performers and composers. Their powerful compositions fuse the Mystical Persian musical heritage with the contemporary sensibilities of Contemporary Jazz.

Combining a unique musical vision with dauntless dedication to experimentation, they create a synthesis of mystical world music composed of traditional and folk melodies and instruments. Their "Brilliance " has been praised by John Schneider of KPFK radio. The Lian is comprised of world-renowned musicians whose diverse and uniquely versatile musical styles lend to this rare blend of Mystical world music. Lian's music flows effortlessly between a diverse range of styles and traditions, while fearlessly forging a path and sound that is all their own.

Los Angeles Times writes, "The Lian Ensemble's music-original compositions written and improvised in class on its own terms". After much collaboration, the musicians have acquired the requisite knowledge of Persian music, and each adds their own distinctive rhythmic sounds to compositions, creating an exciting mix of melodies that go beyond the stylistic boundaries. In performance, Lian's ever evolving repertoire of creative original music is expanded, rearranged, and examined with exploratory eyes at each and every concert. Los Angeles Times (Don Heckman) writes," Lian ensemble is a gifted group with completive compositions and virtuosic performances". Website: www.lianrecords.com Read more on Last.fm.
