طراوت | TARAVAT Pride Performance: Remembering Fereydoun Farrokhzad with Diaspora Arts Connection
Join us Saturday, June 3 from 2-4pm for Remembering Fereydoun Farrokhzad, a music, poetry, and community event in remembrance and celebration of queer Iranian activist, poet, and entertainer Fereydoun Farrokhzad, who was brutally murdered in Germany in 1992.
San Francisco-based guitarist and singer Mohammad Talani will be accompanied by San Jose-based musician Narges Jajarmi on accordion, performing some of the most popular Fereydoun Farrokhzad songs. Members from the Iranian community will read selections from Fereydoun Farrokhzad’s poetry collection Another Season.
This program is presented in collaboration with Diaspora Arts Connection as part of the public programming for YBCA’s ongoing exhibition طراوت | TARAVAT, which highlights the voices, struggles, and personal stories of artists in the Bay Area who are carrying the torch of the Woman, Life, Freedom movement and LBGTQIA2S+ rights globally.
