The Iran born singer Mahsa Vahdat has one of the most beautiful voices in the universe ,so intense ,so mystic ,so passionated that it can express the deepest longing ,sorrow and pain that exists .
Without even trying, Vahdat has taken the globe in her hands and sung it to sleep like a mother would her child, reminding us of just how infantile we are as a global community.
«….an unworldly beautiful record….a benevolent rain of heavenly sounds….Beauty per falling drop….»
Breathtaking, timeless, meditative – yes, powerful simply. The listener can only lean backwards, shut his eyes and receive – listen, ponder, breathe in – thousands of years of old wisdom and beauty.
Mahsa Vahdat has masterfully proven how it’s possible for Persian music to continue evolving
With a voice that is as rich as it is expressive, Mahsa Vahdat is certainly the gold standard for Iranian vocalists.
Her warm and harmonious voice …. incorporates the beauty of Persian classical music.
I recommend sitting down, placing a glass of wine within reach, closing your eyes and listening. Here sings a great voice!
This gently powerful performance showed why they have became ambassadors for Iranian culture.
Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat have sparkled their joyous nature out into the warmth of the Womad crowd ,their magical voices elevating us to a place of rapture far beyond politics .The crowd is won ever ,basking in the good humor and looking up to the women onstage as sunflowers look up to the sun .
These are voices you listen to and follow, as if they were voices of the pre-monotheistic gods, ancient mythic music from the bicameral mind.
Mahsa Vahdat is not only one of the finest woman singers in Iran, she has also dedicated herself to the preservation of the female voice in classical Iranian music .
They have voices of raw silk that blend as only siblings can and create a powerful thread that draws you into the intense emotions of the songs.
what’s remarkable about the sisters is not just their quiet resilience,but the fact that they can bring that sense of liberation ,transcendence and beauty,to another audience entirely .
It could fill a whole lifetime, to represent an old and great culture, appreciated by everybody in the homeland and abroad, honored and heard by everybody.It could also fill a lifetime because the task is big, but the longing is even bigger. You can hear it from every tone, every part of her songs, a longing for life, for peace, for freedom.
