Strunz & Farah

February 4, 2020 @ 9:24 pm
Blues Alley
1073 Wisconsin Ave. NW Washington
DC 20007
$35 (Plus $12 Minimum and $5 Fee)

You would be forgiven for thinking guitarists Jorge Strunz and Ardeshir Farah are just the latest to follow in the rapid-fire, hot acoustic school of Django Reinhardt. The Costa Rican and Iranian musicians, respectively, fold in a vast trove of rhythms, folk melodies and harmonic ideas from Latin America, Persian, Middle Eastern and various other world traditions. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
