WERE IN CONCERT FEB. 22  AT SAINT MARK

Arson Fahim - pianist, composer, & conductor from Afghanistan is a fierce believer in the power of music to be a tool for activism & social change, as well as, a symbol of resistance, perseverance, & hope. 

Arson’s music is often inspired by the tragedies and injustices of war.

This concert featured music for piano & strings written by Arson, plus a new piano quartet commissioned by Cuatro Puntos.

Following up the February 1 release of "Unsilenced: Underground Music From Afghanistan,"this project, organized & sponsored by Cuatro Puntos, in partnership with Arson Fahim, features 12 musicians still in Afghanistan, who recorded their music secretly in 2023, despite threats and possible Taliban punishments to stop th their art.
