Mohsen Namjoo and his ensemble (Yahya Alkhansa and Mohammad Talani) will open up their 2019 Australia Tour in Adelaide’s Elder Hall.
Namjoo is an Iranian singer-songwriter. His style of music is influenced by blues and rock as well as Iranian folk music. The lyrics of his songs are also a combination of Persian classical poems, his own lyrics, and contemporary poems; Namjoo uses the words freely, infusing them with irony and sarcasm to carry the music and to create a free style form of singing. An Iranian correspondent for The New York Times in Iran wrote that “some call him a sort of Bob Dylan of Iran”.
European inspired world music
Join us in two gorgeous Adelaide venues for the third instalment: “Inspirational”, “Sensational!”, “Superb performance!”, “Amazing & enchanting”, “Goose bumps – a rich experience”.
