Ajam from Iran and UK will perform musical night at El Genaina Theatre, May 12.
Ajam is a London based band that was formed formally in early 2010 as an off-shoot project from the 'Simorgh' group. Despite their recent formation, the main members of the group have been playing music together since 2004. Ajam is a cultural experience. In addition to the raw energy of tribal and ritual music that inspires their sound, elements of the dance and movement is incorporated into live shows.
Ajam try to bring the epic, energetic, and often aggressive spirit of the regional music of Iran to this generation. In many ways they reintroduce Iranians to native cultures that are often neglected in representations of Iran as well as creating a platform for an international audience to hear the less standardized and 'untamed' music of Iran.
