Classical, Piano | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:07:02 | 153 MB
Label: Animato | Release Year: 2016

Persian Inspirations, the pianist Nima Farahmand Bafi calls his debut CD. In addition to improvisations on melodies of old masters of traditional Persian music, he makes, as is self-evident, works by Chopin and Liszt. The playful pieces symbolize the two "hearts" that beat in his breast: the one for the music of his homeland, the other for European classical music. Not only Nima Bafi's career is extraordinary. The self-evident nature with which he changes between interpretation and improvisation as well as his walks between classical music, jazz and Persian music make his album an event.

MP3 320 kbps CBR | 42:55 min | 101 MB
Genre: Jazz, Pop, Oldies | Label: Trunk

A breathtaking follow-up to the successful Britxotica! LP takes us on a magic carpet ride to a place where the Sphinx, sheiks, sand dances and caravans of camels are the magical, musical norm. But this is music made by post war jazz musicians and show girls from London - blimey! Yes, this is perfect Persian pop and killer Casbah jazz made by Eastenders! It's also British music as rare and as beautiful as Tutankhamun's treasure. You may never come across a more exotic British LP ever again…you'll be cursed if you miss it.

What do we know about the Persian Empire? For most of the past 2,500 years, we've heard about it from the ancient Greek perspective: a decadent civilization run by despots, the villains who lost the Battle of Marathon and supplied the fodder for bad guys in literature and film. But is this image really accurate?
