Live Music:

Piano by Arash Behzadi
Playing the piano, has been one of the biggest passions of Arash Behzadi since his early childhood, during which he developed a self-taught style and unique touch, with influences from other masters of music and pianists, over the past 25 years of playing, composing and re-arranging many songs in different genres. Arash shares his passion of music, with a series of albums, called “Aram-e Del” meaning “Serenity of the Heart” in Farsi, which includes new arrangements and his personal interpretations towards memorable melodies of the past. The second Aram-e Del album also includes two of Arash’s original compositions, having joyful and happy themes. Arash feels a special connection to Aram-e Del II as each composition and arrangement comes from his heart and mirrors the excitement and emotional moments he experienced, and the journey he travelled within the 2 years between his albums.

Story Telling By Ariel Balevi
he is going to tell one of his stories from Mawlana. It is a story from Book III of the Masnavi.
Here is a brief description; Masnavi-I Ma’navi is the great work of the 13th century mystical poet of love, Rumi. The title of the work means literally “Rhyming Couplets of Profound Spiritual Meaning.” The Masnavi is a poetic collection of stories, emphasizing a personal inward interpretation for each listener. As one commentator explains, the stories are “aimed at anyone who has time to sit down and ponder the meaning of life and existence”
