Call out: Poets and Musicians based in London identifying as Iranian, Kurd or Afghan

Reflecting on the ongoing protests in Iran, for our next event (Thu 17 Nov) we are inviting Iranian, Kurdish and Afghan poets and musicians to join us on stage. If you’d like to participate as a poet or musician please send us a direct message on Instagram or email by 15 Nov.


From the Lips to the Moon is a recurring performance night bringing in poets and musicians hosted by electronic music wizard and composer Pouya Ehsaei and performance maker, performer and writer of crazy texts Tara Fatehi.

Pouya and Tara invite other musicians and spoken word artists to join them on stage to create a unique experience for the ears and eyes alongside live improvised visuals.  

Get your own dragon on a From the Lips to the Moon T-Shirt.

Follow @lipstomoon on Instagram for news of upcoming shows.

Already praised for their graphic design, the event posters are illustrated by Hamid Bardaskan.

We're always hoping to expand our pool of artists so if you're a poet, spoken word artist, musician or DJ and would like to perform at these nights, come to our next show to feel the vibe and write to Tara to tell us about your work.
