Amir Vahab , and Ensemble, with The Daf Caravan

Amir Vahab has been described by The New York Times as an “ambassador for a silenced music.” One of NYC’s most celebrated composer/vocalists of Sufi and folk music, he sings in the evocative, traditional Persian style which embodies millennia of mystical tradition. This evening, Amir Vahab ( and ensemble will perform songs selected from the poetry of the great Sufi masters Rumi and Hafiz and other legendary mystical poets—to transport us to 13th century Persia with all its beauty and exoticism. The ensemble will also perform lively traditional music from Persian, Turkish, Kurdish and other sources featuring the mystical reed flute, ancient lutes, and the daf drum. The concert concludes with a dynamic drumming performance that echoes the universal heartbeat of existence.

Amir Vahab

The New York Times calls him the "ambassador for a silenced music."  Honored as a peacemaker and virtuoso, Amir Alan Vahab is one of New York’s most celebrated and distinguished composer / vocalists of sufi and folk music; his work transcends political boundaries while maintaining traditional sensibilities in a way few artists can manage.

Amir Vahab's music is rooted in tradition, but has been influenced by contemporary sounds. Like Amir himself, his music symbolizes diversity-in-unity.   Amir Vahab is currently teaching and lecturing private and group classes in universities, libraries, museums and cultural centers on the one hand, and organizes music therapy and sound healing workshops on the other.
