Festival of Arts proudly presents Hamed Nikpay for the first time in the UK.
A fusion vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Nikpay’s electrifying voice has mesmerized audiences throughout North America, Asia and Europe. His music, richly layered with soulful melodies, combines his Persian musical traditions with the Latin rhythms of Flamenco and the fluid beats of jazz. Accompanying him is a world class ensemble of artists with eclectic musical backgrounds creating sounds that blend musical elements from east and west; they are Farhadi on soprano sax, Ellis on percussion, Narezo on flamenco guitar and Clerks on bass.
The rapturous music of Hamed Nikpay is further intensified with aesthetic performances by the international artist, dancer/ choreographer Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam, who has enthused audiences with his unparalleled and inspiring performances throughout the world, and renowned artist/dancer, the multi-talented Karen Gonzalez.
