Mahsa Vahdat
The Sun Will Rise (A Cappella) (Kirkelig Kulturverksted)


Solo female singing is banned in Iran but that didn’t stop Mahsa Vahdat from recording this intensely intimate and immersive a capella collection elsewhere in the world. Her fluid, evocative voice is enhanced by being recorded in different acoustic surroundings from the Alhambra to Oslo’s Emanuel Vigeland Museum. Billed as ‘a pilgrimage to beauty,’ it was a Top of the World in #119.
