A leading Iranian composer and musician has recorded a hypnotically melodious song in honour of retired South African President, Nelson R Mandela.
The composer, Professor Pezhman Mosleh, has dedicated the song—My Eternal Man—on his Whispers for Peace and Love album and dedicated it to “Nelson Mandela and the world.”
Touted as the first Persian song for Mandela, the four-minute recording was played on South Africa’s national public broadcaster, South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), as the world marked the 95th birthday of South Africa’s political liberation icon.
Pezhman Mosleh, an award-winning composer, poet and singer who refers to his music style as Neo-Romanticism, is also professor of cinema philosophy and aesthetics and a scholar in music history whose inspiration comes from world renowned composers like Beethoven and Chopin.
Mosleh is said to have won his first award in a music festival competition at the age of 15. This was to shape his future career as a composer, poet, singer, music and creative methods teacher, scholar in music history, professor of philosophy, aesthetic and cinema philosophy and a leading figure in Iranian Neo-Romanticism.
