"... A True National Treasure ...."
(Liberation, July 25, 1991)
"He gracefully took his dotar and started playing. And it was a miracle [...] His Virtuosity and musicality are as natural as they are incredible."
(Le Nouvel Observateur, July 18-24, 1991)
"... one of the world's great traditional musicians..."
(Todd Michel McComb)
Purchase This Album:
During his performance in the Avignon Festival in France in 1991, Haj Ghorban and his son were asked to come back to the stage for 3 encores; afterward they were carried by the audience on their hand and later Haj Ghorban was interviewed by Le Monde, Liberation, Le Nouvel Observateur, BBC, and other cultural media. His picture appeared on the front page of Liberation (July 31 1991) where he was called "a national treasure".
The more we listened to this recording, the more we felt the graceful and natural beauty of his musical expressions and the meaning of his words:
I am the instrument when I perform."
- Haj Ghorban Soleimani
