Vocalist, composer, and scholar Galeet Dardashti is the first woman in her family to continue a tradition of distinguished Persian and Jewish musicianship. Her repertoire includes poetic prayers of Jewish tradition, Persian piyutim (liturgical songs), and  other liturgical and non-liturgical Hebrew and Persian poetry set to new music. Her performance, Monajat, is inspired by the poetic prayers of Selihot, recited during the month preceding Jewish New Year. It is a time-specific concert and program that takes place during a period of deep reflection and spiritual preparation.
