I bought the CD over two weeks ago, and been listening to it over and over again. The artist has used modern poetry from highly respected contemporary Persian poets that each brings myriad of nostalgia in me and many others. This artist can relate to none Persian speaking audience by use of Western instruments such as the Spanish guitar and piano. Great voice filled with messages from the ever living late poets and poetess of Iran such as Ahmad Shamloo, Forough Farokhzad, Kasraie and my beloved Nader Naderpour. Later on, Snapshot and much more songs have their way to the heart. I loved the album and look forward to the artist's next album!
