Haleh Liza is a poet, composer, vocalist, and translator. She'll be sharing new translations of Rumi's poetry from her forthcoming book, and will recite and sing some in Persian that you may hear the incredible rhythm, rhyme, and word play of the original text. Haleh's own poems have been published by Columbia University Press and Rattapallax Press and she's had the pleasure of sharing her work with various projects at venues such as Lincoln Center, Omega Institute, and the Bonnaroo Festival.
