Song of the Reed: Rumi with Dr. Jawid Mojadeddi and Amir Vahab

13th century Persian poet Rumi is now one of the most widely read poets in the United States. In this talk, scholar and translator Jawid Mojaddedi discusses the beauty of Rumi’s Masnavi: its folk tales, sacred history, entertaining stories and lessons, all written in rhyming couplets. This talk is followed by a performance of the poems set to music (in English and Persian) by distinguished composer and Persian classical performer Amir Vahab with his ensemble.
