Ode to Hope is a combination of passionate melodies and rhythms seamlessly fuse into a perfect whole, illuminating the collective pulse and its power to bring peace to all. Three outstanding musicians from Iran formed an ensemble that emphasizes on both the melodic aspects of rhythms and rhythmic patterns of melodies, setting us afloat on an inner journey of passion and peace. World renowned percussionist Pejman Hadadi is the pulse of this journey, as virtuosos Saeed Kamjoo on the Kamânche and Queychak, and Kourosh Taghavi on the Setâr improvise to bring to us as gift, their passionate and haunting music, painting the canvas of life with beauty, harmony, and peace. Part of this trio (Hadadi, Taghavi) brought us the successful album “Epiphany” and now join another virtuoso taking us to a new plateau.
