yadayn is the project of London-based guitarist Gowaart Van Den Bossche. He has announced the release of a new album. Elders is out on November 13th via Lost Tribe Sound. According to the press release, it translates to “elsewhere” in Dutch. As that title suggests, this album is a meditation on groundedness and the possibilities of other lives in other places. Recorded after having moved from Belgium to London, Elders is a meditation on the experiences yadayn had and the personal relationships he built during, in between, and after three trips to Iran, especially its provinces of East and West Azerbaijan between 2016 and 2018. While these trips ended up resulting in a personal failure, this album is one effort to make sense of the events in the form of a highly personal engagement with Iranian musical and literary traditions.
