Hafiz and His Poetry: 

A Presentation by Prof. Kanani, complemented by a musical performance of a quartet with Vocalist Golrokh Aminian and Amir Rahbar on Piano

Professor Nasser Kanani living in Berlin, Germany is visiting Toronto to have a unique presentation about Hafiz, one of the most renowned poets in the history of the world and how he has been perceived by western poets and philosophers. Professor Kanani, a Ph.D. in solid state physics, a scientist and the author of “Hafez and his Divan”, a book in two volumes, will take us through a mesmerizing journey with Hafiz.

This journey will be continued with a sensational musical performance of a soprano, piano, cello and percussions, performing some of the most beautiful pieces based on Hafiz' poetry.
