Came across this collaboration between Chris De Burgh and Iranian pop band Aryan. Now, I’m not a pop-lover, and have never listened much to Chris, but this video made me happy. It’s a rare fusion between an established Western musician with an Iran-based group. Though western influences have been used and fused with Iranian styles of music for decades now, it is seldom the case that within Iran east and west come together physically, and with such good quality as this.
I hope to see more collaborations like this on in the future!
