Robin Zirwanda on Winning over a Mainstream Audience
After nearly 30 years performing Assyrian music for unsuspecting mainstream audiences, we've had our fair share of tough gigs. But if anyone can win over a crowd, Robin can! Recently we performed at a function where the crowd not only weren't familiar with Assyrian culture or world music, but they were there for a posh function, and our support act was an opera singer. Robin had his work cut out. How did he win over the room? Watch the video to find out.
The main thing is just to to be happy to be there, really to just enjoy it. And once you enjoy yourself, the people enjoy it too.
