Dear friends, we are excited to have Kamyar Arsani's Persian daf lessons at CRS on a monthly or near monthly basis! This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to play a magical instrument from a master who learned from masters in Iran. Kamyar has been playing and singing for decades and recently for our Sufi Dance events at CRS when he is in town and taking us ever deeper into the heart. Daf is a big frame drum with lots of rings inside that you can shake when you play for added effect. It is an integral part of Sufi and Persian music because of the variety of sounds it can produce and its ability to induce trance. Let's learn the basic techniques together so we can play for one another at our Sufi events including hopefully at our next public Sufi night on September 28!

Venue: CRS (Center for Remembering No Sharing)
