Since we are officially in the month of March Video Wednesday is going to be all about Norouz, the Persian New Year! This beautiful Persian dance video was shared by one of the readers K.A.. I found myself completely immersed and mesmerized by the beauty of this video, both music and dance wise.

The video is by Ballet Afsaneh and it’s 12:21 minutes. Here is the description: “Ballet Afsaneh performing with Nejad World Music for Norouz 2008 at San Francisco City Hall, Opening Ceremony with mayor Gavin Newsom. “Ode to the Goddess Anahita: Dance of Nature – Sound of Creation””

I could not embed the video, but you can click on the link below to watch it on YouTube.
