Synopsis

Album Description
Aldoush & the Human Exchange create an exotic new sound on their CD "The Child Within", combining ancient Persian folk music with Persian lyrics written in contemporary poetic forms. Their arrangements pass through many different genres, blending traditional Persian classical folk melodies and rhythms with Western harmonies rooted in jazz and classical styles. The result is a sound that contains both the raw effervescence of true Persian village music and the uncanny communication found in a well-rehearsed jazz band. Never before has Persian music been brought to the West with such creativity and innovation- winner of the San Francisco Weekly 1993 Wammies Award for best World Music album of the year, this music is a must for multiculturalists and world music enthusiasts alike. Listen and be enchanted. Instrumentation: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Tamburak, Nazanin, Soprano Saxophone, Clarinet, Six-string Fretless Bass, Synthesizer, Synth Programing, Percussion, Tumbak, Daf.

CD Reviews

Pretty good mix of old & new Persian music
03/22/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I really like this CD. It's a unique blend of traditional (50-60s) and some-what pop-ish Iranian music not heard elsewhere. Contains some nostalgic songs (Zolaykha) reminiscent of pre-79 pop songs, which will appeal to older folks who remember those times (remember Googoosh, Dariush, Koroush Yaghmaie, etc.?)I (being Iranian) and a couple of American friends saw Aldoush perform at Ashkenaz in Berkeley - they thoroughly enjoyed some of the selections on this CD and were very pleased to receive the CD as a parting gift from me (right Frank and Anita?). :)"
