    Rostam Shares "Half-Light" Extended Version Live Performance Video

    Rostam, whose solo debut album, Half-Light, was released on Nonesuch Records in September 2017, celebrated the album's one-year anniversary with a performance at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in September 2018. He has now released a video from that night of a special extended version of the album's title track, performed with a string quartet, each member taking a solo turn that quotes from a famous melody, including the Gaelic tune " Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór," Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," the Shaker song "Simple Gifts," and Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights." You can watch the performance below.

    To pick up a copy of Half-Light, head to iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; you can also hear it on Apple Music and Spotify. Rostam released Half-Light Remixes: EP 1—reimagined versions of Half-Light by Tourist, Jim-E Stack, Instupendo, and Matsor Projects—last year.
