ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The song ‘Rainforest' (Persian: جنگل بارانی - Jangale Barani), highlights the problem of deforestation of tropical forests around the World.
The central metaphor of the song compares the desperate existence of the Rainforest’s soul with the plight of the pit canary, naked and defenseless, “… imprisoned in the air of exhaustion”. Optimism and hope for a “new spring” exists, but without human intervention it is seen as impossible: The Rainforest is a dejected prisoner caught between the remembrance of green times past and the present deterioration. Where, he asks, can it lead? To the great state of enlightenment where he may finally be joined with the infinite existence…?

I am the rainforest air
I am the Spirit of Autumn, fully naked
My story that of canaries
Imprisoned in the air of exhaustion...
-
Spring is on its way, and I think about the open leaves of tomorrow.
Without you I'm in danger of perishing
Sometimes you make me smile like the sun
Sometimes you make me cry like a cloud
But when can I join your infinite existence?

The song, sung in the Persian language, underlines the idea of global human responsibility to our environment. The arrangement is a fusion of Persian and Spanish music spiced with the universal sound of jazz and rock. The multi-ethnic combination of these elements is an essential adjunct to the message - the importance of the unity in our efforts to save the Rainforest.
