CD Reviews

An absolute masterpiece
A. Mohraz | CA, United States | 01/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a monumental, magical, and classic work of art by the Shams Tanbour Ensemble and Mr. Shahram Nazeri. Note this is NOT by the Dastan Ensemble as incorrectly stated on this website.
Buy it TODAY!"

"Having reviewed the 2008 recording of Sharam Nazeri singing "The Passion of Rumi" and other mystical poets, I wonder how this decade earlier album would compare. Here, he is accompanied by the Shams Tanbur Ensemble. Two poems of Rumi are included plus several by Heyran Alishah. The daf drums are especially strong and the overall performance of the compositions of Kaykhosro Pournazeri is excellent. Nazeri's vocal technique is powerful and sensitive; he is a great master of this art. In short, although this earlier album is more direct and classically rooted than the more recent, it is just as worthy; indeed, depending on mood while listening, it is even more effective samâ."
