Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat

The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm

Sisters Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat are two brave and inspiring vocalists. Accompanying themselves on a plucked setar frame drum, their voices interweave in a magical web of sound which had the audience transfixed at last year's WOMAD festival.

What's all the more remarkable given their international acclaim is that under Iranian Islamic law they are prohibited from performing publicly at home.

This concert is part of Songlines Encounters Festival On Tour 2015. Songlines Encounters Festival is co-curated by Songlines magazine and Ikon Arts Management.
