Rana Farhan

New album "Attar Boulevard" coming September 1st 

Seamlessly joining timeless Persian poetry with contemporary musical genres including R&B, soul and blues “Attar Boulevard” features eight original songs jointly composed and performed by Rana Farhan and Steven Toub.  
 
“This is the album I always wanted to make. It reflects all the love and passion I’ve felt listening to this great music that I grew up with.”
The album’s title refers to Attar of  Neishabour, the 12th century Persian Sufi poet and  philosopher.  Rana and Steve view Attar's writings the source of insight that inspired their music and  informed the poems featured in them. In addition to classical poems by Attar & Rumi, “Attar Boulevard” includes a number of contemporary Persian poems including two by Rana's father Taghi Farhan.  

“My father taught me the beauty of poetry. He took great joy in sitting me on his knee and sharing his knowledge of the amazing craftsmanship that these wonderful Persian masters expressed. Not only with their words but also with the rhythm of their phrasing!”

"Attar Boulevard" will be available in both CD and digital format on September 1st.
