Uplifting and Inspiring
Love Evolve is a creation born from a heart of love, that of Shahram Shiva. Shahram has dedicated much of his life to the study and translation of the great poet Rumi. This album features songs by Rumi, and also five original pieces by Shahram himself, which are very uplifting for the soul. These original works include "This is Enlightenment," "Love Evolve," "Be Guiltless," "Control," and "Light + Dark + One." From his depth and wisdom springs his artistic creations, which are now a blessing to all who hear.
Things come to us at the right time, and that is when this music came to me. When I was ready to hear it, accept it, know it, resonate with it, evolve with it and become part of it. I’m sure this music will also come to many of you who are ready for it, you with a beautiful and “progressive heart” as Shahram so eloquently puts it. Shahram, thank you for being a “shower of shine” and giving us this incredible music to help us to continue to evolve through love as a culture and as a people and as ultimately one eternal and connected being.
