Farzane Zamen is a musician from Iran. Musically she brings a dreamy kind of music, world approach with diverse influences. She released the album “Z bent” recently.
As a musician Farzane has released a whole bunch of albums already, not always easy to publish as her feministic message is not much appreciated in her home country. The wish for freedom is large however, and while not giving up she keeps finding a way to release her music and her words anyway.
The album is long, maybe it is easier seen as an EP where you can experience the traditional sound being mixed up with the more conventional from now. Synths are leading you often but bringing in a diversity of instruments the whole gets to a point that it cannot do anything else than tickle your curiosity. The words are spoken by different people and you will hear different languages, making it not always easy to follow the red thread in the release.
Listen for example to “Haram” it has some French lyrics in them while other songs are in English or Arabic. Looking into it deeper you can come to the point and when you find it is unmissable. Music that has this message usually finds a specific audience, but the advantage of going with these different languages is that it makes it easier to reach a wider audience.
Altogether it is release that is created with strength and empowerment. May be it is not everyone’s cup of tea, it’s music that comes from within and that is what speaks for it strongest.
