The Library CD Music Shelf -

Green Memories is a hauntingly beautiful music CD indpired by the poetry of Forough Farrokhazad, one of Iran's most notable contemporary poets, well known for he philosophical views of modern social and political issues.  Featuring the dulcet vocals of Azam Ali, who sings beautifully in words that do not belong to any natural language, as well as the emotional violin of Keyavash Nourai, Green Memories blends both through the processing of the computer music instrument dubbed "Lila" by recording artist Shahrokh Yadegari.  The result is transcendent experience that calls for renewed awareness that humankind is not utterly divided from its environment, but is so deeply interconnected that treating all life and objects with respect is, ultimately, the same as showing respecct to one's ancestors, comrades, and generations to come.  A Poignantly mellifluous album, highly recommended.  The tracks are Vidya (9:30), Mithra (7:57), Maya (6:45), Samsara (6:17), Nirvana (5:17), Homa (6:43), and Mantra (5:33).
