ONE WAY Recommends [Issue #22]
Lily Afshar
By Lynne Bronstein

Hemispheres (CD Archer)


Lily Afshar is a Guitar Goddess, but instead of wielding an electric axe, she spins a fine web of music on acoustic guitar. In fact, she’s one of the best classical guitarists in the world. On Hemispheres, she displays her talent as she plays compositions mostly based on Persian music traditions (she was born in Iran). As the liner notes explain, Persian music, like its Indian cousin, raga, uses a unique modal system, the Dastgah, involving quarter tones, set between the sharp and flat notes on the chromatic scale. “Gozaar,” by Persian composer Reza Vali, uses this system and Afshar renders it, musical tightrope that it is. She also plays a powerful version of guitar maven John Schneider’s “Prelude” and “Fugue.” On “Morgh-eh-Sahar” (“Bird of Dawn”) she plays the Persian seh-tar, which looks like a small sitar and sounds like a dulcimer. The album concludes with “Missionera,” a bristling Argentine folk tune. Lily Afshar’s playing will amaze and dazzle listeners. But one doesn’t have to be a guitar geek to enjoy this tour of her musical world.
