Throughout modern history, music has played an important role as an invisible language and a vehicle of protest for people who live on the fringes or are actively suppressed by the larger society around it. 

The core of Dastaan LIVE is made up of musicians who have performed in and engaged with the independent music scene for several years now. Since music is almost second nature to us, it’s really the poetry and its context that forced us to move beyond the traditional rock show format. 

With our show, we want to do more than just entertain the audience. We want to talk about things that make us uncomfortable, things that make us want to consistently challenge the status quo. We don’t want to be a part of the problem, but a part of the solution to that problem.

In the dark times, Will there also be singing? Yes, there will also be singing. About the dark times”.   

Bertolt Brecht
