Concert Review: Kamran Hooshmand and SoSaLa – An Evening of Ancient & Contemporary Music From The Middle East & Beyond

Date: October 18, 2015
Venue: CA Music Room (NY)

Review by Dawoud Kringle

The double bill at the CA Music Room of Kamran Hooshmand and SoSaLa promised to be a fascinating musical experience. This was the first time I attended an event at the CA Music Room. The venue (actually the home of photographer Clara Aich) was decorated in marvelous taste, and had fascinating art work throughout. The atmosphere was perfectly suited for enjoying music in an intimate setting.

Review by Dawoud Kringle

One must experience the scene at Cafe Nadery. It’s Iranian culture distilled into a small gathering place within which modern Persian intellectuals, artists, and philosophers, fiercely independent and slightly eccentric men, and impossibly beautiful women cultivate an Iranian American subculture.
