He was drenched in a waterfall of beautiful music and culture that had been invisible to him during my youth. A myriad of positive changes occurred while he was there, and his musical perspective changed dramatically after his visit. He then moved to Northern California, and his changing vision began to coalesce and expand. He was finally living in an area that was a hotbed for a growing world music scene and contained the musicians who could be sympathetic to his artistic vision, and he formed the Human Exchange. Aldoush creates an exotic new sound, combining ancient Iranian village music with Persian lyrics written in contemporary poetic forms.
In 1992 he wrote "The Child Within" album which was released on a pioneer record label in World Music - X DOT 25 Music in Emeryville, California. This album was the winner of the San Francisco Weekly 1993 Wammies Award for best World Music album of the year. He dedicated this record to the children of the world- "the greatest treasures". His arrangements blend traditional Iranian classical folk melodies and rhythms with Western harmonies rooted in jazz and classical styles. Never before has Persian music been brought to the West with such creativity and innovation which is the result of his present awareness of both Persian and Western styles of music, and working towards bringing these vastly different cultures together has been his goal. In 1999 he released "This Life" which is a collection of Music he worked on for the 25 years with English lyrics.
In 2001 he released "Rain and Dust" which is a collection of Persian music with electric guitars and 2 songs in English. Then he moved back to his homeland and spend time with people there and then he co-created a new album "The Key" with one of his old friends Davood Ajir in 2007. Later on in 2007 he moved to south of France, where he now writes music for radio and also performs live with Davood.
