An artist in the mind and at heart

This Zoete Zondag, you gain a surprising insight into the life, work and soul of the Iranian daf player Farnoosh Khodadadeh. You get to know her like never before through the music, songs and stories that shape her life.

A musician at heart with a voice that makes you dream. Dedicated nurse in intensive care. Passionate mountaineer, bird watcher and nature lover. An intense Iranian soul who followed love to Belgium and made Ghent her new home.

All that and so much more is Farnoosh Khodadadeh. An exceptional woman, she will come to tell her equally special life story musically on this Sweet Sunday.

  • From the horror of the war she experienced as a child to the healing power of love and music.
  • From the shards of bombings to the steadfast tranquility of the high mountains.
  • From her mother's voice to her father's record cabinet. Farnoosh takes you into her world and tells, sings and plays about love and violence, sadness and hope, goodbye and homecoming, and about rhythms and melodies as medicine.

This Zoete Zondag Farnoosh will be accompanied and supported on stage by her friends and musical companions Lieselot De Wilde, Berlinde Deman and Shahab Azinmehr. Together they take you on a heartwarming musical journey.
