Singer / Songwriter, Arash Sasan releases his début Album Green Dream.
it is a journey through several music cultures. You hear Italian mandolin and mandocello in “Sibe Golab”( Apple), Persian Percussion (Daf) on a song about freedom (influenced by student protests against the totalitarian system in Iran 2004), Latin Rock in “Daram Barmigardam” (I´m going Home), Country twang and harmonica in “Diware Sangi” (Stoney Wall) and finally a sweet Contemporary Jazz piece named “Green Dream”."
Arash: "This Album was a challenge to incorporate all the different genres that have been influencing my musical career."
After finishing his studies in Germany, he goes back home (The Title “I’m going Home”), stays for 3 Months in Iran and begins to record his songs at a small studio in Tehran.
It started in very simple way, just to become very complex in the end: I would play the guitar, sing and it would be recorded. Then we put some drums samples on it. This would be only the beginning.
Some instruments are recorded in Iran. Back in Munich he calls some of his friends such as Geoff Goodman (Jazz guitarist), Johann Bengen (Drummer and Percussionist) and Ro Clausman( Rock guitarist) to work with him on this project.
After 4 months and a lot of hard work and lots of good times, it sounds very good, and Arash decides that the CD needs to be published in Iran. Therefore he tries to get the required state permission. But after some long months, he has to accept that it is impossible to publish it in Iran at this point in history. Hopefully one day!
Therefore he decided to publish his songs on the internet and soon after a German label published his album. The album is available now for sale. All songs are translated in English. We would be very glad to send you one copy.
