Ali Akbar Moradi - Fire of Passion

I've posted about Ali Akbar Moradi twice over the last few years and am very happy to be able to do so again.

Fire of Passion is a tremendous (in both sonic and musical quality) live album recorded during a 1999 U.S. tour. Dig the product review from Amazon:
"Kurdish Tanbur Music of Iran. This is the truly masterful performance of the rare and sacred Kurdish tanbur music from Iranian Kurdistan. Moradi is without question the ultimate master of the Kurdish tanbur, which is the long necked lute that was once used exclusively during the sacred gatherings of the Iranian sufis. It is a very lively and rhythmic music based on the traditional musical motifs of Kurdistan."
