Join us as we have 2019 Grammy Award Winners Opium Moon

   Opium Moon is Kama Sutra music...a sensual and groovy collaboration of master musicians LiliHaydn on Violin/Voice, Hamid Saeidi on Santoor (Persian hammered dulcimer) and voice, MB Gordy on ancient percussion, and Itai Disraeli on fretless bass. We come from the corners of the world—Israel, Iran, and the US—-making peace through harmony.

Opium Moon’s name was inspired by a poem by the great Sufi poet Hafiz, in which he says:

The bird’s favorite songs
You do not hear,
For their most flamboyant music takes place
When their wings are stretched
Above the trees
And they are smoking the opium of pure freedom…
I once asked a bird,
“How is it that you fly in this gravity
Of darkness?”
She responded,

“Love lifts Me”
