A Forbidden Journey

Parvaz Homay is a talented Persian singer and composer who has led the group Mastan since 2005. One of Iran’s most beloved traditional musical ensembles, Mastan plays classical Persian music with great fire and passion, in percussive-heavy arrangements that feature the kamanche (bowed fiddle), ney (wood flute), and tonbak (goblet drum). This release captures their live FORBIDDEN JOURNEY show with which the ensemble has toured the world. The album’s accessibility makes it a great introduction for listeners new to the traditional Persian sound.
