Milagro Acustico

Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayyam

2004-07-13

Shortly after the turn of the first Millenium AD, in what is modern day Iran, the Persian philosopher, mathematician and scientist Omar Khayyam composed The Rubaiyyat, 600 verses which stand as a collection of the world’s most time-honored and controversial poetry.

One brief millennium later, the Sicilian band Milagro Acustico has put The Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayyam to music, with the original Farsi language translated to Sicilian and Spanish.
