Jersey City Theater Center presents Heart of Afghanistan

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- Jersey City Theater Center will present Afghan quartet Heart of Afghanistan at White Eagle Hall on Sunday, September 18 at 6:00pm.  A multi-talented band widely recognized in Afghanistan, Heart of Afghanistan consists of Ahmad Fanoos (vocals and harmonium) his two sons Elham (piano) and Mehran (violin).  Together, they tell the story of Afghanistan from its pre-Islamic Buddhist heritage through traditional Ghazals based on the Sufi inspired poetry of Rumi (who was born in Afghanistan) and the ‘Afghan Elvis,’ Ahmad Zahir, who took the music of Elvis Presley and translated it into Dari. Heart of Afghanistan’s idea is to give a 360-degree view of Afghan culture through music, poetry and art.

“Considering how much we’ve heard about Afghanistan on the news recently, we Americans still understand little about the country’s culture and history. These artists are the messengers of their people. We invite the Jersey City community to join us at White Eagle Hall and experience the rich culture of Afghanistan through its music,” said Olga Levina, executive producer of JCTC.

Tickets are $25, $35 for balcony seats and $18 for students and seniors and available for purchase online.  White Eagle Hall is located at 337 Newark Avenue in Jersey City.

Heart Of Afghanistan is an American Voices Production.

Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) arts organization committed to inspiring conversations about important issues of our times through the arts. Co-founded by Executive Producer Olga Levina, an immigrant from Belarus, Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) produces and presents universal yet locally relevant works, emphasizing social justice and human rights.  Since 2006, JCTC has provided a platform for all artistic voices to be heard in Jersey City, with the aim of sparking meaningful cross-cultural dialogue that helps build a greater understanding, mutual respect and better communities in New Jersey.
