Navá at Hotter than July online

Navá at Hotter than July online
Wednesday 22nd & Saturday 25th July, 7pm

For its 7th year in 2020, Hotter than July is moving to an online space, celebrating inclusivity and diversity with music, story-telling, and creativity that is accessible to everyone from home!

From the tranquil setting of The Space Between yoga studio, techniques of binaural recording will bring you into an immersive musical experience with acclaimed young musicians Navá.

Well-known across Ireland, Navá is a group of young musicians exploring the relationship between the ancient musical cultures of Ireland and Persia. It comprises folk/bluegrass musicians Paddy Kiernan and Niall Hughes, and Iranian-born brothers Shahab and Shayan Coohe. Their performance weaves material from the Irish and Persian traditions into a beguiling tapestry of sound.

Before their performance, band member Shahab Coohe chatted with us about the bands origins, style and influences, for our 'Other Side of the Tracks' Q&A series, which you can now read HERE.
