H. Omoumi Brings Persian Sounds to World Music Concert Series 2006 in San Diego

San Diego (California), USA – H. Omoumi (ney, voice) will
perform at the Neurosciences Institute on Saturday, August 5 at 8pm.

Omoumi is a musician whose mastery goes beyond a single instrument.
Not only is Dr. Omoumi a master of the Persian ney (bamboo flute) and radif
(classical repertoire), a tireless educator and champion of Persian music, an
innovator in instrument design, but also an avid architect with a doctorate from
the University of Florence. Still, the essence of his musicianship is the beauty
of his tone and phrasing, and the creativity-based-on-structure that is at the
heart of his improvisation. Tombak and daf accompaniment by Mehrdad Araabi.

The concert will be held at the Neurosciences Institute, 10640 John Jay
Hopkins Dr. San Diego, CA 92121.VIP $40, General $30, Students $15 at the door.
