We are happy to announce the release of our first CD (double) Open the Gates. The music on this CD is a rich blend of Middle Eastern, African and Western instruments and melodies culminating in a harmony of sound that unites cultures and rhythms.
Open the Gates was a project inspired by the stories of heroes and heroines from mid 19th century Persia who chose to lead a life in accordance with their beliefs - beliefs which ran counter to the dominant voice of the time and which, in the end, cost them their lives.
