Video Title:
Aga Khan Master Musicians - "Nowruz" (Official Audio)
Description:
Listen to Aga Khan Master Musicians' “Nowruz,” the title track from their Smithsonian Folkways album 'Nowruz.' While Nowruz is the traditional Persian New Year that’s celebrated on the vernal equinox, for the artists of Aga Khan Master Musicians, it also signifies something bigger: renewal, solidarity, and hopefulness for the year to come. This spirit of inclusivity is alive in “Nowruz,” a lively musical gathering of tanbur, doira, pipa, saxophone, viola d’amore, and qanun. Featuring: Wu Man - pipa Basel Rajoub - saxophone Sirojiddin Juraev - tanbur Jasser Haj Youssef - viola d'amore Abbos Kosimov - doira Feras Charestan - qanun Purchase/Stream: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/aga-khan-master-musicians/nowruz Bandcamp: https://agakhanmastermusicians.bandcamp.com/album/nowruz All other platforms: https://orcd.co/aga-khan-master-musicians-nowruz In Nowruz, their accomplished debut album, the Aga Khan Master Musicians (AKMM) draw on music from Central Asia, China, the Middle East, and North Africa to create a strikingly original body of work where living musical traditions meet and meld. Acclaimed virtuosos on their respective instruments, the six members of AKMM deftly blend pipa, qanun, dutar, viola d’amore, saxophone, and a panoply of percussion into a soulful new musical language that comes alive in these eloquent performances.
