Synopsis

Product Description
Goblet of Eternal Light wasn t born in the Kurdish region of Iran. But it was born into her. Her roots go back to the Kurdish city of Kermanshah, and her childhood featured regular visits to family there. As a teenager, she even learned to play tanbur, the lute that s the signature instrument of Kurdish music, from some of her father's friends. It was not, though, a focus of her youthful musical training in Tehran, where she grew up. As a singing prodigy she pursued study of Persian classical and traditional music, winning acclaim for her remarkable control and pure tone in the hugely demanding field. But she couldn t hold back the Kurdish side of her roots. So she sought out Ali Akbar Moradi, one of the true masters of the tanbur, which has a legacy said to stretch back more than five millennia. The result several years later is Goblet of Eternal Light, a stunningly beautiful, arrestingly moving album of intertwined tanbur and vocals, both remarkably emotive, drawing on centuries of Kurdish musical and poetic traditions.
