This CD invokes the presence of the divine mother. I listend to this CD while at a week long silent meditation retreat. It filled me with a gentle joy, peace and immense loving kindness. It is very calming, gentle and nurturing. It features the following songs: Ganesh Invocation, Devi Prayer and Lalitha Ashtotram, which is a Sanskrit mantra of the 108 sacred names of the mother divine. ~ Brad VanAuken

In recent years Alireza Ghorbani has established himself as on of the new generation's masters of Persian song. This recognition has come about as much by the range of his repertoire, accuracy and naturalness of voice as it has by his impeccable taste and uncompromising approach. With him, the musical tradition has been revitalised, renewed, transcended. Firstly by his real musical creativity in interpreting new compositions inspired by contemporary poets. Then in the technical and stylistic contribution he brings in to play on the evolution of the musical tradition. Virtuosity, ornamentation, invention, the ability to improvise on the poetic texts may be qualities common to several current Iranian artists, but what remains remarkable about Ghorbani is the conjunction of all these perfections in a single singer.
