TEHRAN -- The Swiss band Bazaar Pool and a number of Iranian musicians have teamed up to pay homage to the late Austrian musician of Iranian origin Asita Hamidi during concerts in Tehran.
 
The concerts will be performed at the Sureh Hall and Andisheh Hall of the Art Bureau on January 24 and 25, Ramin Sediqi, the director of Hermes Records, which is the publisher of Bazaar Pool albums in Iran, told the Persian service of IRNA on Tuesday.
 
Singer Mostafa Mahmudi, Kamancheh virtuoso Kurosh Babaii, duduk player Reza Asgari, setar and shurangiz player Ali Bustan, and saxophonist Peter Soleimanipur from Iran will accompany the band during the first concert.
 
In addition, oud virtuoso Shahram Gholami and pianist Peyman Yazadanian will join Bazaar Pool in the second night of the concerts.
 
Hamidi, a 51-year-old singer and harpist who lived in Bern, Switzerland, died of a type of blood cancer in December 2012.
 
She was born in Vienna and grew up in Iran and Switzerland. In 1996, Hamidi found the Bazaar band, which was later renamed Bazaar Pool in 2003. 
 
Swedish bassist Björn Meyer, Swiss percussionist Kaspar Rast and vocalist Bruno Amstad are other members of the band.
 
Bazaar Pool has collaborated with musicians from India, Iran, Egypt, Switzerland and Sweden in many concerts and recordings.
