Mandurah’s Hot Shore Shuffle continues to bring the best and most unique music in the world to the forefront, this time showcasing the depth and history of Persian music.

Sahra is an innovative contemporary band that plays beautiful Persian music inspired by a classical repertoire. 

The trio showcase traditional Persian instrumentation played with fine musicianship and finesse by Reza Mirzaei on saz and guitar, Esfandiar Shahmir on nay and Saeed Danesh on tombak and daf.

They will be joined by the local Mandurah Kereshemeh dancers, led by Mehrangiz Kalani, who will perform stunning Persian dances. 

Come and enjoy Sahra’s creative interpretation of traditional Persian music with a contemporary context, and graceful Persian dance by Kereshemeh.

There will be a dance workshop mid-performance to get the audience involved in the vibrant movements of Persia, and Oxfam will have a craft stall setup. 

It all happens at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre (MPAC) from 1pm on June 25.

To top it off, each Hot Shore Shuffle is a free event, so bring along the whole family.
