The Tehran Project; Fire & Smoke

On Tuesday, April 19, from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Aqua Books will present The Tehran Project, an ensemble celebrated for its distinctive and virtuosic style that fuses the depth of Persian classical music with elements of Jazz, Indian, Flamenco, electronic and western classical music. 

Tickets are $10

Classically trained, Amir Amiri (Canada/Iran) and Richard Moody (Canada) met in 2010. Balancing tradition and originality, The Tehran Project has gained international recognition, collaborating with distinguished musicians such as Hugh Fraser, John Stetch, and Edgar Meyer.

First drawn together by the flickering light and inviting warmth of a Winnipeg Folk Fest campground jam, Claire Morrison and Daniel Péloquin-Hopfner discovered in each other the potential for their musical partnership, Fire & Smoke. With her dark, rich voice and his feel-them-in-your-bones harmonies, the pair’s sensual interpretation of songs is at once heartfelt and mischievous.
