Slamming for Bam on Bowery

At a fundraiser at the Bowery Poetry Club last weekend to raise disaster assistance for Bam, the Iranian city where tens of thousands died in a recent earthquake, Sara Goudarzi recited Persian poetry as Said Moadel accompanied her on guitar, above. Jamshied Sharifi, at right, played a Chapman Stick, which is not a traditional Persian instrument. According to the event’s organizers, all the money will be sent directly to Shirin Ebadi, a female lawyer from Iran and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Ebadi will direct the money to people in need immediately. For more information about the event, e-mail Sami at Shabesher@hotmail.com.
