I was able to leave the country and I studied and performed music for years before finding my voice and my inspiration because I wanted to create something authentic. I feel like my whole life was a deep slumber, until I started composing and performing my own music ; From that moment on, I dedicated myself, heart and soul, to the creation of this album. During the year 2020 despite the situation I recorded my first EP. It is called Ba Ham Tanha (available on all platforms) which means together, alone in persian. All the songs were written during the lockdowns because the restrictions were a great source of inspiration for me since they reminded me of my life in Iran. We recorded the songs at home, each musician from their place. These are a few of the songs that I would love to record in better conditions and with the the rest of the musicians who could not join us at the time, even though I am very happy with the result as it holds our very sincere emotions and energies during those times. Why Bidari (consciousness) ? I decided to call my album Bidari which means consciousness in Persian since it is the story of my awakening. The songs are about my encounters during my mystical voyages through the illusions and towards my freedom. The path that I walked for the transformation of my wounds into light, to reclaim my power and to reconnect with the magic and the beauty that surounds us. -Music description/ style My musical world is poetic, but a very simple and romantic poetry, with no borders nor a specific style, but made out of many colors, rhythms and sounds. My compositions are made to remind human beings of the magic that surrounds us and to inspire freedom, may it be of expression, of style or of spirit, with love and respect for all cultures and traditions and without seperating them. Water has no shape, love has no condition, I am you and you are me ! From the song Abi (blue) -Why should you support this project With your help, I will be able to make my music the way I actually hear it and to share it with the rest of the world. The album is the fruit of all my efforts since my childhood. It will give me the opportunity to take my place in the world as a professional artist. It will help me inspire other human beings and especially the women in countries like Iran, to follow their hearts and to know their power. The wound is the place where the light enters you.
