Haale in Concert - Santa Monica (January 5, 2007)
NY-born singer/songwriter Haale Gafori gave a hypnotic and mesmerizing performance at the Temple Bar in Santa Monica. The concert kicked off her West Coast tour following the release of her two new albums. Haale blends Persian melodies and modern rock. It's a mix of old and new lyrics that makes her music special. She uses Sufi poetry particularly that of Rumi and contemporary Persian poetry translated into English in her songs. Consequently, the deep Persian message of love in her music is accessible to all audiences.
