Marjan Farsad 22:00
Marjan Farsad's surprising and colourful animations and melodies are of a penetrating beauty. The Tehran-born singer-songwriter, illustrator, animator and activist writes, composes and draws far away from her homeland and surrounds herself with kindred spirits for the concert. Throughout her lyrics echoes the longing for freedom and for contact with her loved ones in Iran. For the concert, Marjan draws on her new EP Be Yadam as well as on two albums she produced herself: White Tree and Blue Flowers.
