Mohammad Reza Mortazavi - Ritme Jaavdanegi

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi - Ritme Jaavdanegi

$22.00

Acclaimed virtuoso percussionist, “the man with the world’s fastest fingers” Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, gifts another utterly hypnotic expression of hand on drum.

For his sixth album, presented by Latency Recordings, the Berlin-based Iranian artist adheres to 11/8 metre across eight pieces, a time signature in accelerated tempos vital to the traditional sounds of Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan and the Balkans. Mortazavi invokes the complementary phrase ‘ritme jaavdanegi’ (‘rhythm of eternity’), bending loosely cyclical riffs into perpetually expanding worlds that burrow deep into the listener’s ear.
