Dang Show @ Jazz Festival from Iran
The eclectic music style of Dang Show comes from the creative combination of classical Persian poetry and saxophone, piano, and percussion. Dang Show approaches Eastern music from a new perspective, assuming that while the music of the East is deeply emotional and rooted in Eastern ideologies and life styles, it can be expressed with traditionally Western instruments. Dang Show uses this key to open the hearts of people around the world and share these emotional expressions with them.

The name Dang Show ("Give up your Wisdom") for this 5 person Jazz band has been borrowed from one of Rumi's poems.  Many Iranian music critiques believe that Dang Show's influence on Iranian music is as strong as the impact of Fikrat Amirov on the music of Azerbaijan, and Astor Piazzolla in Argentina.  Among intellectual circles in Iran, Dang Show have received unprecedented levels of praise, including from artistic luminaries such as award winning film director Abbas Kiarostami and renowned painter and author Aydin Aghdashloo. The latter lends his legendary voice to a recital of Rumi poems, featured on one of the tracks of Dang Show's latest CD "Shiraz 40 Years Old".  

Dang Show has performed numerous times in Iran and in other countries to sold-out audiences. Their repertoire includes five events in celebration of the 800th anniversary of mystical Persian poet Rumi in Bangkok and the occasion of 80th birthday of HM the King of Thailand.  They have also performed at the International Winter Festival in Sarajevo and received overwhelming praise from the media.  Dang Show has also composed and recorded soundtracks for over 10 major Iranian movie releases.

A unique opportunity to hear the North American premier of the Dang Show, and listen to Rumi & Hafiz performed parallel with Portland's Jazz Festival 2011.
