Weekend Passport: Ukrainian Music And Iranian Puppets
Each week global citizen Nari Safavi usually helps listeners plan their international weekend.
This week, we look ahead to the Chicago Puppet Festival, which begins next week. One of the biggest attractions is an Iranian puppet show based on the Persian Book of Kings called Feathers of Fire. The book was translated by our guest Ahmad Sadri, a professor at Lake Forest College.
Plus, we talk about a concert of Ukrainian winter songs accompanied by the bandura at the Old Town School of Folk music with organizer and former Worldview intern Julian Hayda.
