Persian Arts Festival and Drom Present: Night of Melodic Wanderlust – A Spring Voyage to Celebrate Iranian & American Fusion

Persian Arts Festival is proud to announce its 9th annual Nowruz celebration, Night of Melodic Wanderlust, a spring voyage to celebrate Iranian and American fusion, MC’ed by comedienne Susan Peret, featuring Persian-Americana rock from three of the city’s hottest bands. The highly-anticipated event will take place at NYC’s premier global music venue Drom on Friday, March 27 at 7:00pm ET.

Headlining the event will be Vatan a Persian meets Americana, or self-described as, “Iranicana”, group hailed by Aslan Media as one of the top emerging Middle Eastern bands to watch for boldly redefining bi-national American identity in melodic terms.

The evening’s line up will also feature acoustic singer-songwriter flair from opening act Arian Saleh, as well as East-meets-West classical fusions from Persian folk master Navid Kandelousi. Rounded out with Vatan’s signature Perso-country grooves, the three acts create a seamless bridge between Iranian and American fusion, amplifying what it means to empower heritages, pay tribute to family roots and celebrate cultures through musical dialogue.

Advance tickets cost $15 for standing room, $25 for guaranteed seating, and $35 for guaranteed seating with a pre-fixe menu. Door prices are $20 for standing room, $30 for guaranteed seating, and $40 for guaranteed seating with a prix-fixe menu. Tickets can be reserved online at dromnyc.com. The venue will also feature a mini Shurka Bazaar, where guests are invited to peruse through arts, crafts, books, jewelry, and more throughout the event.
