In search of Simurgh is the new offering by Radiodervish (artistic production Saro Cosentino), a special project inspired by the literary work The Conference of the Birds (Mantiq at-Tayr) by the 12th century Persian author Farid ad-din Attar. The tracks on the album are all connected with Attar’s book.
The music makes up a sort of oriental suite in which emotions inherent in the literary work generate a fable-like atmosphere with moments of meditative and rarefied consciousness. The lyrics are written in the diverse languages typical of Radiodervish’s approach, the three main ones being Arabic, English and Italian.
