Bijan Moosavi: Nasheed Choir (2017)

Bijan Moosavi is an Iranian multi-media artist based in London who was invited to The Art House in 2017, as part of the Migration: International Residency.

During his time onsite, the artist developed the Nasheed Choir to expand on the idea of ‘welcoming’ migrants. This film captures the choir’s performance of an old Islamic song (‘nasheed’), titled Tala’ al-Badru Alayna (طَلعَ البَدرُ عَلَینا).

The performance took place during the opening of the MIGRATION exhibition at The Art House in Wakefield (UK) on May 26 2017.
