Working with Danish producer and DJ Mashti, "Sufiyan" is a special combination between the ancient and traditional, connecting it with the modern and technical. If asked, Bahram says about the origin of his music: "It is simply spontaneous and comes from the heart, it develops out of the moment."
Somehow Bahramji and Mashti combine what should be polar opposites: soothing, flowing, meditative santoor, flute, ney, settar together with powerful beats and mystical Eastern vocals. It's done in a truly symbiosis. Sufiyan combines influences from ancient, traditional Sufi melodies as well as Kurdish and Indian sounds. The multi-layers of their music reflects itself also in the texts about wisdoms and experiences, which go back to old Persian mystics and poets such as Rumi, Attar or Hafez.
A spinoff of its parent magazine, Classic Rock Presents Prog takes a look at progressive music and the artists who weave them together. Each issue takes a soul-searching foray into the hearts and minds of the heroes of rock, reviewing both new and old releases. Building upon the history of some of the most genre-defining pieces ever devised and those who followed who continue to refine, revolutionise and completely discard the formulas of those who came before. Reflecting on the proud genesis of this unexpected genre, Classic Rock Presents Prog is an able tutor for those in the dark about the evolution of progressive music, and a tonic for existing fans.
