Keshvar Project, a music and dance ensemble, is a rich collective of creative and dynamic spirits. They know how to fire up a crowd, get ‘em dancing, as well as root them gently in their seats mesmerized by choreography and song . Ancient rhythms, stylized through a 21st century lens, create a hypnotizing flight of melodies and drumming. Dancers dramatically express both the sensual and the earthy layers of sound. Musicians in a middle eastern gypsy jazz fusion of originals and old world classics drive the dance. Out of this mix of passions rumbles forth a vision of moonlit celebrations with a harmonious spice. Let the spirit and soul of the Keshvar Project inspire you…
"Keshvar" is an ancient Persion word describing the structure of the world and its origins. Likewise, borne out of the ancient sounds of the Middle East and the movements of American Tribal Style Belly Dance, Keshvar Project extends and encompasses all parts of the world, borrowing and honoring different cultures and styles.
Interaction and communication among the dancers express the language of feminine energy though choreographed and improvised movements; adding the passion of the musicians creates a unique 21st century expression of music and movement. Together the original live, heart-felt music and dance showcase the old and new in powerful, mesmerizing performances, refelctive at one moment and intense the next.
