On December 7th I was honoured to perform at the Event “Khorasan, Country of the rising Sun”  in front of the Mshatta Facade in the Museum of Islamic Art at the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin. This was an event held in honour to the culture of Khorasan consisting of lectures, music and poetry related to this cultural area in Central Asia, which spans over Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.
