LOVE EVOLVE is Shahram Shiva's latest album of transformative songs. It is a multi-genre CD with mind-altering lyrics by Shahram Shiva. LOVE EVOLVE blends chill-out and dance music with yoga and spiritual transformation.
LOVE EVOLVE features new original lyrics and some of Shahram Shiva's favorite Rumi poems.
Blending elements of rock, dance, groove based, trip-hop, ambient, electronic and acoustic with the hypnotic voice of Shahram Shiva, this beautiful and unusual album is an anthem for progressive minds and spirits that yearn to constantly evolve and an empowering experience of love, beauty, freedom, self acceptance, wisdom and joy.
