From the introduction to Dastan Ensemble’s “Through Eternity: Homage to Molavi (Rumi)” CD:
Seven hundred years after his poetry swept the Persian world, Molavi better known in the West as Rumi can still be heard within the lush rhythms and phrasings of Persia’s passionate musical tradition. On Through Eternity, Iran’s acclaimed Dastan Ensemble [with Shahram Nazeri] bring together an all-star gathering of master musicians in an unprecedented evening of virtuoso vocal and instrumental performances.
