Musings on Khayyam Neyshabouri Poetry

Screenshot_20161021-050616Kambiz Dara and Reza Forghani are phenomenal improvisors that I had the privilege to perform with in a Persian literature gathering in Griffith University, Brisbane held by Shahab (Brisbane art and cultural nights in Persian). I am no expert on middle eastern music but I have always liked to adopt the tradition of deep and long improvisations on solo instruments, the way they have done for hundreds of years; a phenomenon that I have found non-existent in electric guitar. These are musings on a Khayyam Neyshabouri poems with Kambiz on piano and Reza on vocals and me on electric guitar.
