About "At The Door"
A Yellow Flower (Gloi Zard) is the result of Shahriyar Jamshidi’s long-time contemplation of Kurdish culture and poetry. He attempts to create a conversation between Kurdish music, cultural elements and modern life. This album is a collection of classical and contemporary Kurdish poems. He tries to alter recognized rhythms through sequences of non-redundant asymmetric segments to deliver both the poet’s and the composer’s perception. The concept is more significant and the melodies are inspired by a sense of social circumstances. Specifically, in the two songs “La Bar Darga” and “Goli Zard”, contemporary poems by Abdullah Pashiw, the composer intended to narrate the concept of these two tales musically.
