I'm very excited to invite you to be a part of my kickstarter campaign. I'll be raising funds with the help of you guys to make my next CD 'The Mardom Movement' a reality. Mardom in Persian means People and I don't think I could have picked a more appropriate name since you are directly involved with the process.
In the past, I've released two other Movement CDs. One was dedicated to my love life (The Ziur Movement) and the other to my family's nomadic journey to Canada (The Lamaj Movement). I've had this idea in the back of my mind for years: how can I write an album that's about the people who have inspired me through travelling and touring the world the past few years? This project will be a big step forward because I've gotten the chance to play with some outstanding world class players who have taught me something important about music: the art of sharing it with others. This CD will mostly be a collection of collaborations with other instrumentalists, including some tracks with the Persian Setar and some solo acoustic guitar compositions. Since the last two albums I have gained a lot more life experiences and musical ideas. I intend to harvest these into making my new musical ideas come to life.
Thank you for all your support so far and I hope you will join me in making my dream as a musician come true! I've got some really cool rewards I want to share with you so do have a look at the link above and see what you think :)
