The music of Smith & Dragoman takes the listener on a sonic journey through stories of heroes and heroines in the Bahá’í Faith who chose to lead a life in accordance with their beliefs, but for which they were greatly persecuted. Beginning in early 19th century Persia and spanning over 100 years, the music touches on themes of love, courage, sacrifice, hope, loss, search, faith and the indomitable power of the human spirit.
Together since 2003, Smith and Dragoman have produced four albums and one Live in Concert DVD. Listeners can enjoy an array of musical styles that can best be described as a fusion of many different genres and traditions. From larger cinematic compositions, to more intimate three-part folk harmonies ; from powerful percussive rhythms to haunting middle-eastern chants - we hope our music will strike a chord with all.
