Shida Shahabi (SE/IR)
The Sound of Piano
Swedish-Iranian pianist Shida Shahabi began playing the piano at the age of nine. As a child, she listened to Mozart and Tchaikovsky, and she discovered grunge and the alternative music scene as a teenager. Her music steers a middle course between Erik Satie’s languishment and the hypnotising feeling created by repetitive piano patterns. Her debut album Homes appeared at the end of 2018, and this will be her first performance in Belgium.
