Product Description

V.A.-ZENDOONI-Funk,psychedelia pop Iranian pre-revolution generation-NEW CD



We proudly introduce you to PHARAWAY SOUNDS, the ultimate reissue label diggin deep in the occidental influenced sounds from the East in the 60s & 70s. First release shows some of the best to come out of Iran with a no-filler compilation that will leave you asking for more instantly (don't worry, youll get more soon!). All releases are manufactured in HQ 350g carton cover, with inner plastic paperbag, inserts with linernotes, sealed and with sticker. All come with remastered sound and eye-catching artwork.
Zendooni celebrates a time when Pop artists in Iran ruled the country. During the 70s, before the Revolution, Occidental and Middle East mannerisms collided and the result was a new kind of Iranian Pop which incorpotated different genres and arrangements to its Persian roots. Touches of Funk, Jazz, Latin, Bossa, Progressive- Psychedelic sounds and Morricone / Blaxploitation styled soundtracks can be heard on this collection, culled from miraculously survived vinyls and cassettes. A surreal voyage back to the Golden Age of Persian Pop. A vibrant time when female singers like Nooshafarin, Azita, Pouran or Ramesh appeared in colourful teen mags dressed in full hippie fashion. We are proud to present for the first time to Western ears amazing examples of Persian psych-prog like "Safar" by Hassan Shamaizadeh and "Vi Bafa" by Kambiz ; Persian funk by Azita, Nooshafarin, Emad Raam, Pooneh ; Bollywod styled sounds by Ahmad Wali & Hangama and much more.
Remastered sound, colour insert with pictures and detailed liner notes. "...Tehran pop tunes often have melodic phrases common to the traditional dastgah system. Here, those modes & scales impact with some western instrumentation thats audibly swankier than any you mightve bumped into elsewhere. Funky, slick & stiletto-heeled pianos & strings sparkle with the same foxy wit as any 3am jazz session, Boogaloo or Blaxploitation tune. Youll hear cuts & swivels that would make Quincy Jones jealous right alongside santur, tar, or tonbak. The blend makes for riveting & unexpected music..." (Angela Sawyer, Weirdo Records, USA)
