The esteemed heir of Iranian singing, Ashkan Kamangari, accompanied by two young prodigies, transcends time and space with an exceptional voice.
For a moment, with half-closed eyes, we find it difficult to tell if we are in Paris, in Teheran, in 1920 or in 2010. It is the magic that Ashkan Kamangari keeps alive through his unique voice and his perfect mastery of the Persian classical song. A young prodigy gifted with extraordinary energy, at only twenty-five years of age Ashkan is already high up among the most impressive voices in Iran. In turns apprentice to Omoomi, Shafiei and Noorbakhsh, he has been studying under the greatest master for two years in the subject, Mohammad Reza Shadjarian. In Sufi Islam, he is a traveller of the senses, always in quest of new interpretations, of universality. Two young virtuoso players of Iranian strings, Sina Jahanabadi on the kamancheh and Sardar Mohamadjani on the tar, reputed explorers already, will accompany him in this adventure.
