Listen to the title track of the new CD by Parijat.
This is the title track from my new album ‘Prayer to Love’ which has just been released. The first instrument you hear is a Gu Zheng. It is a Chinese harp (in Gm) which I intuitively play with ease. Despite the jump in location I found that an Iranian voice would fit in perfectly when tuned to the Gu Zheng. This was magically fitting.
To give the piece a bit more earth I used the Indian tabla (another jump in location) from a professional iphone app of recording quality. It is a marvellous musical enrichment. Then I added my nylon guitar picking to the piece to carry the Gu Zheng and the voice.
All these different flavours felt like a beautiful journey in music, particularly because the composing and recording of the piece went so smoothly and effortlessly.
