In 1999 Sima Bina was invited to perform in a series of concerts and festivals in Europe and America. She decided to invite a number of talented Iranian women musicians to accompany her in presenting an assortment of her Khorasan folk songs and music. Having these young women musicians performing on an international music arena with her, and continually receiving positive feedback, was of national pride to all of them. Their first concert was staged in the renowned WDR World Music Festival in Bonn, Germany.
