The album Assemaneh contains compositions that were written a few years after Dariush Zarbafian left his home country of Iran.These pieces were inspired both by the traditional Iranian musical repertoire known as ‘Radif’ and by the sense of hope and nostalgia that he experienced most profoundly during his stay in France. Dariush always tries to create a new and more accessible language through the medium of traditional music, creating in the process a rejuvenated musical voice which preserves an authentic cultural character while emancipating itself from traditional obligations.
