"GOLESTAN - THE FLOWER GARDEN OF HEARTS
Our band was formed following an exhibition at the turn of the millennium. Following the visit to the "My homeland, Iran" exhibition its photos somehow didn t let us leave. The Persian folk song that was performed during the opening ceremony and which mesmerized us to stay was then taught to us by surgeon-photographer Dr. Nowrasteh Ghodratollah, stage name Dr. Khonji. He became the ensemble s front man, songwriter, our "Jinn".
Golestan music is the fruit of a real cultural fusion, a delicacy that has been tasted by the audiences of Hungary, the United Kingdom, Iran and the United Arab Emirates. It s acoustic pop music richly interwoven with elements of folk music. Prominent is the presence of the stylistic features known from the performances of Southern Iran s peoples with Turkish and Ancient-Persian origins. Song lyrics is written in LarestanCounty s Achom language by its native speaker Dr. Khonji. Our cultural mission aims at helping this language to survive. Our music s even tempered nature has a harmonic effect, we still have a couple of dynamic songs that call the audience to dance.
""Baroonday / It’s Raining "" is the fifth album by Golestan band. As in earlier albums, this album is inspirited by Hungarian-Persian artist's soul and passions. Natural elements have always been the essence of our music and this is reflected at its best in all of the songs.
Baroonday meaning it is raining touches the heart of many fans as rain is the symbol of life and the reason behind spring. Rain equals life as is interpreted as God's gift. There are thousands of melodies describing this phenomenon. Golestan has a share in this, too.
Golestan songs have captured the hearts of many people who live and love across the continents. The latest album ""Baroonday"" is an ultimate integration of this cross-cultural co-existence."
