Mohsen Namjoo and Ensemble Live in Amsterdam.
Mohsen Namjoo, one of the most controversial contemporary Iranian singer/ songwriters, hailed as “Iran’s Bob Dylan” by the New York Times, will perform with his band and will give two concerts in Amsterdam at Podium Mozaïek on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 November 2013.
After a successful solo concert in 2012, Mohsen Namjoo will be back in Europe this autumn to promote his new album, Thirteen/Eight, with his band. Due to popular demand, this time he will be performing two nights at Podium Mozaiek.
Mohsen Namjoo has performed internationally in the US, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany. He has performed at the Rotterdam International Film Festival in 2007, and a sold-out solo concert in November 2012 in Amsterdam. He has been described by the international press as a “Maverick” and “Avante Gard” for his ability to fuse traditional Persian and folk music with jazz, rock and roll and blues, and for using his voice as an instrument in unconventional ways. The lyrics of his songs just like his music are also odd, unusual, and innovative combination of Persian classical poems, by poets such as Hafez, Rumi, Saadi, his own lyrics, and contemporary poems.
Mohsen Namjoo has garnered large numbers of fans and critics alike in Iran and abroad. He is a visionary artist who speaks for, and touches the souls of today’s youth. Seamlessly blending the classical with the Modern, the ancient with the current. Mohsen Namjoo is a musical maverick, a non-conformist who not only takes on the centuries old traditions of Persian music, but also his own approach to composition, style and sound.
Join us for another unforgettable evening, and experience Iranian culture and music through Namjoo’s visionary and unique approach at Podium Mozaïek.
