"Be Yad-e Gilan" (meaning "In Remembrance of Gilan" in Persian)
This folk dance from Ghasemabad (in northern Iran) is about harvesting rice, the most abundant and popular food from that region.
This piece was performed by the students of Shahrzad Dance Academy (SDA), a California based Persian dance company in the U.S., founded by Shahrzad Khorsandi in 1996.
SDA performs both locally and internationally at various events such as cultural festivals, weddings, school & library educational programs, and formal concerts.
