Savourna Stevenson - 'Persian Knight Celtic Dawn'
[Cooking Vinyl CookCD 375]
Excellent new CD from Savourna where she is joined by master Iranian percussionists, Djamchid and Bijan Chemirani, Alyth McCormack and Paul Spiers.
A spontaneous session with the Iranian percussionists whilst recording for Radio 3 inspiredthe idea of blending Middle Eastern music and poetry (using text from Kahlil Gibran's 'The Prophet') with the Celtic tradition and Gaelic language.
This is every bit as beautiful as the sum of the parts suggest, they are playing live dates which are surely a must see. Sublime. Graham Radley
