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 songâ€”My Eternal Manâ€”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,Â South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), as the world marked the 95th birthday of South Africaâ€™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.
