In the initiatory spiritual missions specific to the Iranian Shi’ism (Walâyat), to the ancient medieval Persians myths (Conference of the Birds), Isteghna is the step of detachment, of the necessary introspection for the understanding of alterity, of the sensitive, but more specifically of the occulted imaginary.
Written in 2020 during a collapsing climate now known by all, this chivalry album is once again born from a traditionalist desire to put some love and orientalism back into a world which has became a mirage.
“Our loneliness within the world is not a “dead-end” destiny, but an essential “duality””. –Henry Corbin, writing about L’Homme et son Ange.
Imaginary world, daydreaming nightmare, sensitive ecstasy, scholastic humor, Isteghna offers a psychedelic adventure in the occult of the deep ego, in search of the being of Light.
