Performing In Public

Sohrab jamming with Chinese musicians @ Columbia Park (NY), June 15, 2013


This video is a documentation of a happening in the park, in front of the Delacroix Theater in summer of 2009. Sohrab was playing at his spot and the dancers just passed by doing their performance. The producers liked Sohrab’s sound and asked him to play for the dancers. He is playing the new song Welcome New Iran, a homage to the Iraninan pro democracy Green Movement.
