Shahab Tolouie recently announced that the new record is on its way. “The second album is almost ready.” he said “That’ll be done soon.”
The new album follows in the Ethno-Flamenco vein while bearing the legacy of Shahab’s 3-year quest for new sounds. By looking deeper into the aspect of rhythm, Shahab has gone for tight and dynamic arrangements reflecting the pace of modern life, yet as lucid and transparent as Persian unison melody. Each song is a reflection of impressions of Shahab’s years living in Europe, distilled into those structures and sounds that express them best for this recording.
His last invention (the triple-neck FuseTar) that’s been used for recording of this album is a hybrid instrument in which, for the first time ever, the traditional Persian Setar is in tète-à-tète with other instruments endemic to a large region from the Middle East to Europe.
Coming up soon: more information and Pre-orders to be available for the new album. Don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list to be first to know about the upcoming album’s special offers.

Approximately two years ago, Shahab Tolouie began the realization of his long-term idea to gather the diverse strands of persian, jazz and flamenco together in a manner that incorporates modern technologies in one instrument to attain the precise timbres that are optimal for live performance of his original style – Persian&Flamenco fusion.
The name is derived from “fuse” – English for “fusion” and “tar” – Farsi for “strings”; hence ‘fusion of strings’. The nickname Lucifer is that of the mythological morning star, the bearer of light. ( More )
