Both players are quite good. They combine Persian tradition and tonalities with an original composition-improv approach for some haunting music.
Both were born in Tehran, founded their duo in 2014 and recorded this album in Lugano, 2015.
What makes this album especially attractive is the fine interplay between Riahi's floating clarinet tone and Khayam's well developed, singingly classical guitar style.
The music has a magic of its own that mark this duo as something very special. Highly recommended.
