Sufi and Ghazal Night with Ustad Naim Nazary at Local 16
October 29, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - October 30, 2017 @ 1:00 am
Afghan Sufi and ghazal singer Ustad Naim Nazary will perform Sufi music and ghazals in the intimate setting of Local 16’s second floor lounge. The ghazal (Arabic/Persian/Urdu: غزل) is a poetic form with rhyming couplets and a refrain, each line sharing the same meter. A ghazal may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. Ustad Naim Nazary is a master of the art form and will be accompanied by harmonium and tabla. Seating on beautiful Afghan carpet and traditional Afghan food will be available. This event is free to the public with the option of donating voluntarily to the musicians. This concert is presented as part of Multiflora’s DIY multicultural music festival taking place in multiple venues across Washington DC in October 2017.
