Today we bring you two offerings: a music video and a pre-recorded live session.
In the course of February, March & April 2021 several musicians came together for a unique series of short, acoustic, surprising concerts. Heartwarming and intimate.
In 2019 musicians Thomas Noël and Farnoosh Khodadadeh went to Tehran together with filmmaker Jonatan Lyssens. There they met singer and sitar player Soroosh Gharahmanloo. In March 2021 he came to Belgium for a few weeks and the entire band, now expanded with Robbe Kieckens and Anaïs Moffarts, worked on the recording of an album. We already lift a corner of the veil with these three songs.
