Maestro Shajarian on StageMohammadreza Shajarian accompanied by the Ava music band will be performing concerts in the U.S. in April/May 2008.

He gave a series of concerts together with his new band Ava, in Tehran in the summer and in Isfahan in October.

“The concerts will be held in many U.S. cities, but the exact time and locations of the performances have so far not been specified,” Ava’s tar virtuoso Majid Derakhshani told CHN.

Derakhshani went on to say that the band had not entered the 23rd International Fajr Music Festival since Shajarian had been scheduled to give concerts in Dubai which were later cancelled.
