(Naqsh: Farsi word: ornamentation, form, figure or any other shape which is related to visual arts.) Internationally active duo, Golfam Khayam guitar and Mona Matbou Riahi clarinet, is offering a palette of colors in an unforeseen musical territory by discovering the overlaps of Persian and contemporary music. Through this musical synthesis, members of this duo are seeking a path to explore their instruments
differently: pushing boundaries for new colors, illusion of timbre, eccentric ornamentations, and uncharacteristic sound effects for the instruments. Musicians, both born in Teheran, have pursued further musical adventures outside Iran while remaining fascinated and strongly influenced by their homeland’s rich and diverse traditions. In this process they have arrived at synthesis of their own, finding points of contact between aspects of Persian tradition and contemporary music. Narrante is the duo’s debut album produced and published by ECM records which has so far very well received worldwide, from Aljazeera to financial times, NPR. NPR selected the album in the category of “Songs we love”.
