Traditional Music and Dance Performance

Najva Ensemble was founded by Sina Bayat in Jan., 2006. The thought of forming Najva was a spark released from rich Iranian poetry, literacy, and culture. Najva’s music includes both the songs and lyrics mainly composed by Sina, as well as a collection of folkloric songs from different provinces of Iran. Najva has been formed by a group of distinguished and renowned musicians to better fulfill its goal of binding with listener’s mind and heart, influencing love, peace, and exhilaration while introducing and promoting Iranian classical and folkloric music.

Najva has been honored by having performed for many non-profit organizations helping them to raise fund for their humanitarian causes as well as numerous other concerts. Najva has been one of the biggest highlights of the Mehrgan Festivals in 2007, 2008 and 2010.
