Album Notes
Title: “Call of the mountains”

A lonely flame, lit in the blistering cold of loneliness, is
the spark of life. Once the darkness of the night takes
its toll, nothing is left but the cold pile of ashes of time.
In the heart trembling darkness that consumes all, a
lonely voyager searches with all the hopes of a man of
desert beneath the deepest ashes for the warm spark of
the last remnants of the fire… Life blazes through that
small flicker of fire. The legends of the enchantments of
Zoroaster still linger in the grieving hearts of the Fire
Temples upon the lonely heights of Zogros Mountains.
The vivacious chorus of life, love and the whispered
worships of the people of the Sun, still runs through the
ceaseless veins of river Alvand and Sirvan.
In this piece, with dedication to the Kurdish origins and
traditional Persian music, a revolutionary presentation
has been made through improvisional instrument playing
in an exceptional method; with liberate and altering
themes of sonority in Kamanche. In some pieces,
Kamanche appears in petite and ephemeral figures based
on Kurdish themes accompanied with percussion,
resembling the natural yet hoarse sounds of the gypsy
players of past generation. The rhythm, unlike what has
been presented up to date, has been pre-determined; the
creative mingle of sounds and assortment of several
percussions is evident in some parts. Caution has been
taken as to avoid any recurrence of archetypal, tedious
rhythms and instead replaced by duets with melodic
instruments such as a tête-à-tête between the melody
and the rhythm causes the Kamanche and the percussions
to merge together.
