Dear friends, we are excited to have Kamyar Arsani‘s Persian daf lessons at CRS on a monthly or near monthly basis! This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to play a magical instrument from a master who learned from masters in Iran. Kamyar has been playing and singing for decades and recently for our Sufi Dance events at CRS when he is in town and taking us ever deeper into the heart. Daf is a big frame drum with lots of rings inside that you can shake when you play for added effect. It is an integral part of Sufi and Persian music because of the variety of sounds it can produce and its ability to induce trance. Let’s learn the basic techniques together so we can play for one another at our Sufi events including our next public Sufi night in September! 2:15 – 3:30 pm Beginners Daf Class

3:45 – 5 pm Intermediate Daf Class

1 class $50

both classes $70

shorturl.at/jmopW Bring your own Daf or frame drum, a pen & a 3–line or 5–line blank musical staff notebook (or paper, which you can find templates of online to print). Some Extra Dafs are available to rent ($5) for the class, but you must RSVP because they are limited and you will want to get your own so you can practice! While many different dafs are available for purchase online, one such as this one, which has a synthetic head, is reasonably priced at $119, has good tone and construction, is not too heavy, and can be delivered in a few days by DHL, would be a great choice for learning on:

https://salamuzik.com/products/professional-daf-rad-404 About Instructor Kamyar Arsani “Kamyar Arsani is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter born and raised in Tehran, Iran. With his focus on Daf (Persian frame drum), through years he expanded circle of his instruments to Drums, Percussions, Guitar, Ukulele and Melodica. He currently resides in Washington D.C, teaching and performing around DMV area and working with individuals with Autism. Kamyar began Daf lessons with Master Bijan Kamkar. Kamyar has spent over a decade performing and researching the Daf and its roots. His second choice of instrument was the kamancheh (Persian string bow instrument) and he studied it with Masters Ardeshir Kamkar and Sohrab Pournazeri. Ten years ago, Kamyar and his family migrated to the United States around the same time that Iran’s Green Revolution was occurring. Kamyar’s songs and performances are very much inspired by the people of Iran and their history of struggle and protest. At the time he started working as Autism classroom Teacher Assistant in Virginia and Washington DC public schools, and the science of Behaviorism and creating motivation for students with Autism became his passion. But he did not put music behind, Kamyar produced his first solo album in 2015, entitled “No Freedom.” It was written on Guitar and Ukulele. The album was dedicated to those oppressed by Iranian Government. https://kamyararsani.bandcamp.com/releases Aside from his solo work, Kamyar also plays in other collaborations and has performed series of concerts at Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, Georgetown University, UMD, WVU and VOA. Kamyar is also the poet and singer of “Time is Fire (TiF).” Their music has been described by Washington Post as “Music from a country that does not exist.” https://youtu.be/2rn3u92MAR8 (Kennedy Center Performance) With the new wave of hatred portrayed among our nation, Kamyar could not sit quiet and wrote four songs inspired by Rumi and Hafez and Ferdowsi poems on his Daf, inviting people to believe in a new spring together.
