Join us for an evening of film about forced relocation of populations in Iran and its impact on the music of the region.  George Murer, CUNY PhD Student in ethnomusicology, presents footage he has recorded and collected on the music of Khorasanian Kurds, whose ancestors were relocated to Iran’s Northeastern frontier by a succession of Persian shahs. Next, we will air the documentary Afro-Iranian Lives, by Behnaz Mirzai, exploring the world, rich in music and ritual, of Iranians descended from African slaves.

The program will include approximately one hour of video and 16mm film projection, followed by discussion led by Murer.
