Album Review

It's perhaps ironic that you don't need to be able to understand the words to appreciate this celebration of the 700th anniversary of the birth of the great Iranian poet Rumi. But these performances by father and son, along with the other four members of the ensemble, transcend language to reach pure emotion. It can be as affecting as singer Shahram Nazeri's vocals on "Fanayam Man 1," where a spare backing merely emphasizes the voice, or the remarkable instrumental "Journey to Eternity" featuring Hafez Nazeri's work on the stringed setar (Persian lute), a virtuoso piece of playing. He deserves praise, too, for his compositions here and arrangements, which carry further the idea of monophonic Iranian melodies and dress them in harmony, making for a full, glorious coat which is instantly accessible to Western ears. Using young musicians who are both deeply familiar with the tradition and willing to experiment, he creates something lush and beautiful, the perfect foil for his father's voice, which is a majestic, emotional instrument, and a true listening experience. This is far more than a celebration of a man and his works, it's an achievement of outstanding merit.

Father & Son Duo

Shahram Nazeri and his son, Hafez Nazeri, prove to be masters when recreating the atmosphere of one of the greatest Persian poets whose pieces infiltrate the homes of Persian (Farsi) speakers. Every part of this album is superbly done as each track takes you to new levels of ecstasy. And even if you don't speak the language, you will be put into a trance. This album is highly recommend for those who enjoy Rumi (Mowlana). Be sure to put this next to your favorite copy of Rumi (Mowlana).

One of the best Nazeri's album ...

This is not about only the music,but the poems, and the rhythm, and how to singing them are fantastic. Specially Enchanted I and The passion of rumi, are the best "Shour" rhythm i ever heard.

غير قابل وصف

اين البوم يكي شاهكارترين البوم هاي جهان است. شعرهاي حضرت مولانا را هركسي نمي تواند به صورت موسيقي كه واقعاً متناسب با خود موسيقي شعر مولاناست شكل دهد اما حافظ ناظري اين كار را كرد و شاهكار غير قابل وصف را توليد كرد، اميدوارم روزي اين نوع موسيقي در جهان به بهترين شكل ممكن كَسترش يابد
