New Album 'Radiant Heart' is Available Now!
Everywhere we go we get asked if we've have done an album together...and every time we've had to refer people to individual songs sprinkled across our respective albums...that is, until NOW. We are thrilled to share the release of our most requested album. 'Radiant Heart' is the first full length devotional album which features twelve duets. Six of the twelve songs on the album are brand new. The remaining six songs are collaborations from their discographies pulled together for the first time. This album features a unique blend of East and West with the Baha'i Writings set to soul-stirring melodies in English, Farsi and Arabic.
Released 10 years after Shadi's first album, 'Radiant Heart' was completely funded by hundreds of generous individuals worldwide through Kickstarter earlier this year. Produced by Shadi in Vancouver, Canada with live studio instruments such as the cello and double bass as well as traditional Persian instruments, the Kamancheh and Daf. Continue supporting Shadi directly through purchasing her music through her website. Listen to samples, buy a CD or Digital Download directly on the website, copies of their past work are available too. Shadi and Shidan's music are also available on all streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music etc).
