An album of eight pieces of solo Oud and Vocals, is the story of a wanderer, in a land of no sign, no time. The journey begins at a point of ending for others, inspired by and having words from a poem by Roudaki (an Iranian poet of 10th century) followed in 7 stages of move and stop, till it comes to the Last Turn, picturing a poem by Ahmad Shamlou (the outstanding contemporary poet).
The album is played on a small-bowl Oud made by Mohammad Taghi Arafati.
