Ariana Vafadari enthrals audience in Dhaka

French singer Ariana Vafadari enthralled the audience in Dhaka with her musical performance. She performed at a musical evening, organised by Alliance Française de Dhaka, at Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in Segun Bagicha of the capital on Tuesday. At the musical show, Ariana Vafadari rendered songs from ancient Iran, accompanied by three French musicians playing oud, double bass and drums.

Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor attended the musical show as the chief guest, while Ambassador of France to Bangladesh Marie-Annick Bourdin was present as special guest. As a part of her world tour, French mezzo-soprano classical singer Ariana Vafadari performed in Bangladesh.

She recently performed at the famous Sacred Music Festival in Fès (Morocco) and in Paris at the Theatre de la Ville, the prestigious French concert hall dedicated to world music. For the concert, Ariana Vafadari composed songs based on Gathas, mystic prayers of Zoroastrism, the ancient religion of Persia. The profound connection she feels with her Iranian roots has brought out remarkable renditions of 3,700-year-old Gathas. These prayers are surprisingly modern, exposing life, doubts and choices of man.
