Dreaming of a different world for women – Sahar Ajdamsani’s poetic Iranian folk piece

Dreamy World is a beautiful folk-style song, composed by Giovanni Amighetti with spoken word by Iranian singer Sahar Ajdamsani.

It very much reminds me of the Greek folk music of Nikos Mamangakis. Wistful, beautiful, sensitive, with the beautifully soft spoken word of Sahar Ajdamsani.

Naturally I can’t understand a thing, but the pace and tone, reminds me of a story unwinding.

There is a political dimension to this track. In Iran, I am informed, women are forbidden to sing. For this reason the lyrics to Dreamy World are spoken.

This track is part of an album of the same name, composed by Giovanni Amighetti. Artists from 12 countries have collaborated on this album.
