Global Beat Master Jamshied Sharifi Announces CD Release Party on April 14th in New York

New York (New York), USA –  Join Jamshied Sharifi with guest performers Hassan Hakmoun, Yungchen Lhamo, Mamak Khadem and Vishal Vaid for a unique concert event in celebration of his upcoming April 2008 CD release of One.

One enmeshes the musical cultural exchange between the East and the West and will transport your imagination to faraway lands.

Known for melding together Middle Eastern, African and western musical styles, Sharifi goes even further on One by taking some gigantic leaps across the musical map to cross-pollinate different world music traditions to create something entirely new," says World Music Central’s TJNelson. “I wanted to put together singers and musicians who wouldn’t normally perform together and see where that led,” Sharifi says. He goes on to admit, “I was intentionally disrespectful of the world music ’boundaries,’ hoping that the spirit of cooperation and mutual respect would prevail.”
