Description

Mamak Khadem has walked many roads in her remarkable life, from her childhood and youth in Tehran during a critical juncture in Iranian history, and her longtime work as an educator, to her acclaimed career as a singer, composer, and devoted advocate for cultural diversity, appreciation of Persian cultural traditions, and human rights. Called "one of the wonders of world trance music" by the Los Angeles Times, she has stunned audiences with her striking blend of classical Persian vocal style with diverse contemporary musical influences.

The album, her fourth release, is a powerfully deep and loving tribute to her late father. Written in the isolation of her Santa Monica home during the COVID pandemic as her beloved father lived out his final days back in Iran, with Mamak unable to travel to be by his side, the album's sense of beauty, separation, and loss is profound. Guest appearances by Chris Martin (Coldplay) and the venerable Rumi scholar Coleman Barks enhance the first single, "Across the Oceans," but the power of Mamak's voice and the pure depth of her poignant emotional expression are what truly set this entire recording apart.
