Persian music is refracted across generations in this exceptional triple bill anchored by legendary singer-songwriter and guitarist Faramarz Aslani. Beloved for setting classical Persian poetry and original lyrics to pop grooves, Aslani has been one of the most respected Iranian artists since his 1977 hit song "Ageh Ye Rooz" (If One Day). He shares the evening with KIOSK, the popular rock band that emerged from the Tehran underground in the early 2000s, and Brooklyn-based Habibi, whose lauded new EP, Cardamom Garden, blends Iranian rock from the '70s with girl-group harmonies and surf guitar.
“One of the most influential underground rock bands to emerge since the 1979 Iranian Revolution”– Inter Press Service on KIOSK
“Glisten of sixties girl-group pop, with the uncensored edge of flower-gal liberation. They’re soft, but damn savvy.”– New Yorker on Habibi
