My music has some sapects
of gushe from Mirza Abdolla radif , but it also
has some melody influence
from "Jimi Hendrix" radif [sample]. So I call it Arfo-Persian as
to offend traditional
Persian ostads .
I have great love and respect for the music and culture.
More songs are available
here. Some have English, proken
Persian language and have more Negro blues influence. The first
improvisation is an attempt to play as style of music that was played in
early Qajar Era. There are no
recordings of it, but it used the skin of the Kamancheh, the loose horsetail
on bow and light touch of
fingers on the strings to create a fast harmonic bird song like resonance.
I emulate. the language and song of
a bird rather that the radif notation. I understand why it may be chalangeing
to listen to as western classical
music has had much influence recently. But it is my tribute to pure Irani
tribal spiritual communion music
as my spirit feels. I will be posting new songs weekly at download.com Once
I find the right players that is an ostad on tar, tombak, daf,
santur and a nice studio I will take charge
and create my new vision.
was born and raised in Los Angeles and currently live in the San Fernando
Valley, Califorina. One day I hope to
study at a music school in Iran. >>> Larri's
