Monika Jalili’s goal is to expose the global music audience at large to the beauty of Iranian poetry and music by presenting a slice of non-classical music of Iran that is rarely heard by non-Iranians. The selected songs and arrangements are interpreted by a Western ear and accessible to a wide audience. To that end, she requests that when possible, Iranians coming to the concert please proudly invite a friend or neighbor to join them to hear this beautiful music.
