With this song we share a music style, a flamenco air, with two artists from different countries and cultures. The voice by Sepideh Vahidi (Iran) and the versatile percussion of Darren Proctor (U.S.A) are magic. My studies about Japanese Buddhism Zen and the reflection "We Are One" I heard from a musician, makes me realize that we are a whole on the cosmos. We are all actually working together as a team and with our evolution of consciousness eliminating borders, race, politics, sex, male/female, religions.
Years after letting her true love go because of family pressure, he is still the only one in her heart. If only she had stood up for him. If only she had fought for their incredible bond, if only she had tried to open their minds and hearts... Maybe they would have accepted him despite his difference, maybe they would be together today, maybe she could have been happy...
Oud, Jazz guitar, brush-kit drums, Raq percussion, upright bass, strings and vocal, all melted together to create "Touched In A Dream" a piece that transcends cultural and language barriers, to speaks directly to the heart. I can't say much about it, as I believe that true art and music needs no introduction. Just listen with your bones, and it'll reflect to you that profound feeling. Cheers, Beshar
‘Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!’ From ‘The Dictator’ by Charlie Chaplin.
Look at me and I’ll look at you. Listen to my heart and I’ll listen to your heart. Feel my pain and I’ll feel your pain. Show me your happiness and I’ll show you my happiness. Talk to me and I’ll talk to you. Remember my voice and I’ll remember your voice. We are no strangers. We are all one. Beyond music. Beyond borders.
