“Sovereign” is een instrumentale uitvoering van Shahnameh (The Epic of Kings). Het is een uitgebreid Perzisch episch gedicht geschreven door Ferdowsi (940–1020) als een verzameling van Perzische mythologieën. Hierin vind je westerse instrumentale rock met oosterse invloeden. Sommige stukken zijn volgens mij perfect te bewerken voor de Iraanse dans. Vooral de tracks “Sovereign” en “Harem”. Ik kijk in ieder geval uit naar de choreografisch aangepaste uitvoeringen van dit werk wanneer dit mogelijk is. Stel je Iraanse “Coffee house” muurschilderingen en buikdansen voor, met vrolijke ritmes van vervormde gitaren. Ongewone combinatie? Nee, voor mij klinkt dat heel normaal.
