In Israel and Iran, Rita Yahan-Farouz is so well-known she goes by one name. In America, sheís becoming known for her sultry sound as well as her work as an Israeli-Iranian cultural ambassador: a star using the arts to build a bridge between cultures. This stunning sensation comes to Strathmore to perform the beautiful, hopeful music thatís made her famous in the Middle East.

In her latest album, My Joys, Rita has created an original and engaging sound that has proven an immediate hit with her fans around the globe. The fact itís sung in Farsi is significant, since it illustrates not only her deep connection to her Persian roots, but her commitment to delivering a message of peace in light of the current political climate. Rita will also perform her biggest hits in Hebrew and English.

This concert will run approximately 120 minutes with no intermission.
