Nowruz is the traditional Iranian festival of spring, which starts at the exact moment of the vernal equinox, commencing the start of the spring. It is considered as the start of the New Year among Iranians along with some other ethno-linguistic groups. The name comes from Avestan meaning “new day/daylight”.
Performed at the University of Maryland Iranian Students’ Foundation’s Nowruz Celebration – 3/16/18. Choreographed by Sahra Akbari.
