Discography

Daffodil Reverie was composed by Martin Reese who took inspiration from an English dance tune that song speeds up and slows down, returning constantly to a steady beat.  In this version, the emphasis is less on the steady and more on the different rhythms that the music conveys.  Couple this with the passionate lyrics and inventive arrangement of Arash Zanganeh, add in the striking performances from the members of the Diaspora Ensemble and special guests, and you have it: the daffodils move in the wind and we are entranced.

It'll officially available to everyone now on (Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, Amazon Music, Deezer, Napster, Google Music, Shazam).

This album, Mystery of Creation, is a fusion, an attempt to bring together the intricacies of traditional Persian music with western electronic music. The use of Persian instruments alongside western instruments requires knowledge of both western music as well as the traditional Persian style evidenced in this collection. In weaving together these diverse styles one can find a new identity which at the same time as maintaining its Persian tradition, allows for a broader understanding and engagement by both Iranians and people from other cultures. The incorporation of poems by Rumi, and traditional singing with vocal ornamentation (tahrir), which is based on the Persian modes of Nava, Shur, Chahargah and Homayoon, creates joyous waves of sounds.
