The word ‘paradise’ floats in the mind like a shimmering balloon, and through its Perisan origin signifies a utopian venue for all our dreams of a better life, beyond linguistic and cultural barriers. Music is a language. Or rather, many languages at once, understood through confluence, and without the need for standardizing language classes and grammar. Urban Turban & Shamim Naghedi’s new album on the Caprise Record label can be likened to shredding a number of phrase books and stitching them back together in completely new configurations. Thirteen popular Swedish ‘schlager’ hits, with Persian lyrics. Sant ar livit (You Can Have Her), Ar det konstigt att man langtar bort nan gang (I’m Gonna Be a Country Girl Again) and Grat inga tarar, as no one has heard them before. With new rhythms, and slightly modified melodies, played on unusual instruments. Unfamiliar- yes. Familiar- yes. But why Swedish hits from the 1960s, and why in Persian? The short answer on the second part of that question is pure playfulness and fate combined. “The lyrics could easily have been translated into any language,” says Peter Bryngelsson. Why it became Persion is a direct consequence of the meeting between the two Iranian singers Safoura Safavi and Shamim Naghedi, both of whom are also responsible for the translation of the lyrics.
