TEHRAN – Shabdiz, a folk music ensemble from the southern Iranian city of Bushehr, will perform tomorrow at Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Doha, Qatar.

The band is also scheduled to give a concert at Katara Cultural Village on Jan. 20.

The program is organized by Iran’s Islamic Culture and Relations Organizations (ICRO) to expand cultural relationships between the two countries.

Music in Bushehr was strongly influenced by the African slaves who were brought to southern Iranian cities centuries ago.
