Gol-e Behesht

When Parissa and Dastan recently toured Europe with their new project "Gol-e Behesht" ("Rose of Paradise") they reaped standing ovations wherever they went. The highly acclaimed multiple award winning Diva of Persian Song (Concerto) immerses herself here in Persian poetry. Her timbre, declamation and expressiveness are unique, her poetic sensibilities unsurpassed. Parissa, the singing princess of 1001 Nights, and Dastan sweep us away to the magical world of Persian music. "A wonderful voice" Jazzthetik, "Persian classical music in its most perfect form" SFB, "Her crystalline voice enchants our ears" Liberation, "Voice of the century" (Daily Telegraph) – extraordinary and compelling in every way. In the sensitive musicality of Dastan, Parissa has found a cohesive and virtuoso ensemble capable of carrying the enormous range of her voice "like the perfume of friendship". The members of Dastan are acknowledged masters of the long-necked tar and setar lutes, the kemanche spike fiddle, the barbat lute and the daf and pendariq frame drums. The erotic lyrics are by the great Persian poets Rum, Sa'di, Nizami, Esfhani. Under the sign of love, Persian poetry has an eroticism so potent that it becomes impossible to distinguish between sacred and profane love. This lavish edition includes complete translations of all the lyrics
