* I Return

"I Return" (Baz Amadam), the long awaited second release from Iranian born recording artist, Rana Farhan, arrives. Inspired by the great Persian poets, Rumi and Hafez, Farhan chose to record “I Return” in her native Farsi. Farhan sings each of these classic poems in a sultry, seductive voice set to a backdrop of modern blues and jazz. The result is a magnificent new sound that transcends cultural boundaries and demands your attention. Already an Internet sensation with clips played worldwide, Farhan, who left Iran to pursue her dreams in 1989, is enjoying an explosive and enthusiastic response. Now, with the international release of “I Return,” Farhan looks forward to sharing the art of these master poets with the world through this outstanding collection of original music >>> RanaFarhan.com

Persian born artist Rana Farhan sings in a cool, bluesy style that erases all borders and transcends time. Performing selections from The Great American Songbook and other song gems, Rana sings with great expression and a style reminiscent of the great masters Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan among others. She is a delightful performer, full of passion and surprise. Guitarist Steven Toub provides the perfect accompaniment and complimentary lead lines to these classic jazz standards. The two artists share a passion for music and a love of life, and they create music which reflects this >>> RanaFarhan.com
