Come and join Central Asia enthusiasts for an afternoon tea at Pansodan Scene this Sunday 3pm. Poems by Greg and Jamoluddin and songs by Mari.
Poetry readings (in Persian with English translation) will introduce you to Persian poet Rudaki (born 989) – a founder of Persian classical literature, Omar Khayyam (born in 1048) – a Persian astronomer and mathematician, and Ibn Sina (born in 980). Ibn Sina is otherwise known as Avicenna, author of many works, including a canonical medical encyclopedia that remained such in Europe and Islamic world until 17 century.
Songs are to be a surprise.
