Iraqi-born songwriter Robin Zirwanda sings in his native Assyrian Aramaic language, once the common tongue of the civilised world but now considered to be in danger of extinction. To the mysterious sound of this ancient language he adds the familiarity of pop-rock and the spicy heat of Latin rhythms. It’s a dance concoction deliberately pitched at mainstream audiences, which has made Azadoota one of Australia’s most popular world music acts. In costumes derived from Ancient Assyrian dress, Azadoota perform a repertoire of catchy originals, which extends from percussive dance tunes to sexy love songs, to solid funk, roots-rock and a touch of reggae - always conveying an irrepressible sense of celebration. Seemingly fuelled by espresso and Iraqi temper alone, percussion powerhouse Robin fronts the band with timbales and doumbek his tools of trade, twirling his drumsticks as he switches effortlessly from Cuban rhythms to those of his home country. Such an eclectic musical spirit befits a band whose music spans genres, whose heritage spans continents and whose members span generations. Bikies start bopping, folkies let loose, emo kids smile and hippies go berserk whenever Azadoota take the stage.
About this track...
Classic Azadoota featuring punchy brass on a merengue groove propelled by guira and tambourine, this catchy and danceable song "Lishana" (which means Language) is an upbeat rallying cry for young Assyrians to preserve their ancient Aramaic language.
