Yaa ayy-o-hal bartender

From "The songs of Hafiz"

Blue Sadhana presents a unique collection of songs in the World/Folk style, featuring talented singer songwriter James R. Newell. James has skillfully adapted the lyric poetry of 14th century Persian Sufi Poet Hafiz of Shiraz to American folk music idioms. He has created an eclectic blend of world and folk melodies which effectively make available the classic beauty of Hafiz's lyrics to the modern, English speaking listener. In particular, his feel for American blues music evokes the ambiance of the traditional Sufi tavern, adding a sense of mystery to the classic Persian themes of lover and beloved, the wine of Divine intoxication, and the torturous path of love.
