Artist Bio:

Moshen Namjoo is an Iranian musician and singer-songwriter whose style is influenced by Blues and Rock as well as Iranian folk music.

The lyrics of his songs are a combination of Persian classical poems, his own lyrics, and contemporary poems; he uses the words freely with irony and sarcasm to carry the music and make a free style of singing. In 2008 Namjoo kicked off his first solo US tour, which granted him the Visiting Artist Fellowship at Stanford University. In 2010 he performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Sony Center in Toronto, Canada and the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. “Trust The Tangerine Peel” is the latest album of Mohsen Namjoo which was released in May of 2014.

Letter from IACA Co-Founder and Board Member, Ali Ghambari:

Dear Friends, Family, and Community,

The Iranian Festival 2014 is fast approaching and is now just a month away on Saturday June 28th at the Seattle Center Armory.

The Iranian festival aims to share the arts and history of Iran, its customs, food, music, dance, and poetry. Every year, over 3,000 people from across the Seattle area attend the Iranian Festival and participate in one of the largest celebrations of Persian culture across the country. Last year we were able to mobilize over 50 volunteers to organize the festival and work at the event. The success of this event was due to the passionate dedication of volunteers and community members who gave their time and energy in creating a memorable experience for the entire community.

Without unity, building a viable community and celebrating diversity is not possible.

I challenge you to tell me what is a more important event that you can work for or give to? What event brings more love, unity and sense of community, to yourself, your kids, your family, your friends, your Iranian American community and the bigger community as a whole in our state of Washington than the Iranian American Community Alliance (IACA) Iranian Festival? The Iranian Festival has been building community and love for the last 7 years. When we talk about the IACA Community organization we talk about an organization that does not have any affiliation to political or religious group, it doesn’t mean that our board members and supporters do not have their own personal religious beliefs and/or political affiliations. Each of us as individuals come together with the love for building community that encompasses everyone with love in our great community.

Love,
Ali Ghambari
