Directed by Mâm-Li Merati, “Hallâjvashân” is a fusion of traditional music Persian and Kurdish song interpreted by Kurdish instruments, Persian, Armenian and Spanish. It is the result of years of ethnomusicology research.

This project is the musical expression of how we feel the poems by Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a Persian poet of the thirteenth century. We tried to translate Rumi’s message of Universal “Love” by referring to the source of his word, indescribable, ineffable.
