For One Found Sound - Shahmaran (2019)

The story of Shahmaran is of Persian and Kurdish origin, and is believed to have happened in the Anatolia region (today’s Turkey). The Shahmaran figure which is portrayed as a half-woman, half-snake creature is widely popular and prominent in this region and is incorporated into different forms of arts, including rugs, paintings and into architecture. The story is about true and ultimate love which equals to self-sacrifice and selflessness in love and appears in many cultures’ literature and poetry in different forms and shapes.

Rhyme by Rhyme - Amaranth Quartet

Based on Forough Farrokhzad poetry

Flying Carpet is a collective of world-class musicians, artists, and visionaries who believe in the power of music as a catalyst for positive change in the lives of children. The festival is to be held in Mardin, Turkey and serves around 1000 refugee children through workshops and 20,000 through live performances.
