Modern Rendition of a Classical Theme

Hamed Nikpay, a local Persian artist in the Bay Area, has rendered a modern poem in classical tradition on a Persian-Spanish instrumental fusion. You can watch the video below. (Links to the CD are given on YouTube.)

Emad Khorasani is the poet, and his poem is well-rooted in the classic "modern Persian" ("modern" as opposed to "middle" or "old" Persian of pre-8th century days).
