There is the second album by the Iranian band Suryademah, entitled 'The Seven Cities of Love'...
... on Altar Records. This conceptual album was inspired from ancient spiritual tales of Persia collected by Attar, nine centuries ago. Attar was a great Persian thinker and poet who expressed himself through these ancient tales. Suryademah composes with specific Iranian musical scales to get some unique tribal psychill and psytrance sounds along with unique eastern percussive instruments such as Divan, Tanboor, Daf, Kanjira and Bendir.
We are thankful to Dmitriy AstroPilot for his excellent sound engineering, to Ishtvan Sky for his evocative vocals for healing and Zubin Kalhor for his playing Kamanche, Kaman Delroba and Barbat. Many blessings to master of Donely maestro Shir Mohamad Spandar.
Suryademah is currently working on his third album in collaboration with Vincent Villuis from Ultimae. The third album is scheduled on Altar for the end of 2015 and will be entitled 'In Search of Shams'.
Special thanks goes to Gabriel aka DJ Zen and also to Sina, K 1, Yahya, Omid Nickbin and all the friends!
