Spirits of different heritages and origins, called Bād, the Persian word for wind, moving through the air, take possession of the islander’s bodies and can only be calmed through a music ceremony called the Zār ritual. Through the pounding drum rhythms and wailing vocal choruses of these rituals, the audience is given a rare and unexpected glimpse of the Islamic Republic of Iran where humans and spirits coexist.
