Appreciating The Seattle Iranian Festival

46 +

Enjoying the food, poetry, speakers, dancers, musicians, vendors and beauty of Iranian culture displayed at the 11th Annual Seattle Iranian Festival.

Seeing so many non-Iranians here is a reminder of the wonderful multiculturalism of the United States. Few countries, if any, have such a rich history of embracing and celebrating diversity.

Wow, what a visually rich, fun, rhythmic and nostalgic video. It's amazing how music transcends all boundaries, including time. I loved it. Thanks for posting :)

I should be winding down but...

The Ramesh video you posted reminds me of none other but the extremely talented Gloria Estefan And The Miami Sound Machine.



...and a little Sheila E. (such a #boss)
