This Is Tehran? (New LP)Various Artists
Label: 30M Records
"Tehran - Iran's cultural melting pot with a population of 15 million.
There is a broad and lively music scene here, about which little is known in the West.
"This Is Tehran?" invites you to discover this music scene and marvel at its diversity. From contemporary classical sounds with Saba Alizadeh on the Iranian spiked fiddle Kamanche or Siavash Molaeian together with Kasra Faridi on the piano to the well-known experimental electronic musician Ata "Sote" Ebtekar. The electronic beats of a cooperation of Ehsan Abdipour and Andreas Spechtl stand naturally next to jazzy sounds of a Parastoo Ahmadi or Mina Momeni. The Otagh Band invites you to the dark, trip-hop laden "Rotenburg," which they wrote about the "Cannibal of Rotenburg."
“This is Tehran?” will be 30M Records’ second release, and presents the capital’s wild creative energy with tracks that span contemporary classical, to experimental electronics to trip-hop and jazz in a mesmerizing journey through a fascinating culture..."
