Powerful ballads are artfully transitioned from classical Persian melody to Flamenco, Sufi sounds are mystically fused with smooth jazz, poetry of Hafez is masterly set to the Argentinian Tango, and the commanding orchestral harmonization of Tehran Underground String Quartet is laced with soulful vocals of Hamed Nikpay.
The moods and beats of the songs are in constant change reflecting the intelligible, and eloquent words of revered Persian poets, old and contemporary, set to the music of this album. A quintessential and groundbreaking world music/Persian fusion collection.
