Synopsis

Album Description
It has been said that Shusha possesses "the dark beauty of Persia and a voice to match." This recording, dedicated entirely to her Persian roots, captures a performance of exquisitely beautiful songs of love, betrothal, separation and mystical wisdom, sung in the intimate and sensitive style that has made Shusha an internationally known performer. The songs of an ancient and noble civilization; the bonding of thousands of shared visions. Bask in the richness of the flute and zarb accompaniment and immerse yourself in the cool, soothing timbre of Shusha's voice.

Persian Love Songs & Mystic Chants

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Shusha has an incredible voice - earthy and pure - so beautiful that it stands alone and can carry a song without any accompanying instruments at all. I am studying Farsi and have spent a great deal of time trying to find Persian music that fills my soul. So much Persian music has a production value I don't care for, rendering the music rather cheap and tinny-sounding (the organs! those strings!). But this album, with Shusha's sublime voice, accompanied by simple acoustic instruments captures all of the beauty of the Persian culture. The only thing that would make this CD perfect would be to have included the lyrics.I would love to receive recommendations from other people who enjoyed this CD - please tell me where to find other Persian CDs of this caliber! I listen to it almost every day but would like to expand my enjoyment to other artists."
It's a Masterpiece!
