Persian & Iranian music, Global Songs for Father's Day, and more - 15 June 2012

Playing tracks by

Niyaz, "Homayoun Nasiri, Mahsa Vahdat & Sarah Jane Morris, Zarbang Ensemble, Mohsen Namjoo and more.

When they’re not busy in their secret laboratories concocting new batches of evil (joking!), Iranians make some fine, fine music. Seriously, Persia/Iran has a rich and remarkably diverse musical and cultural history, and this week we’ll explore sounds ranging from compositions based on mystic Sufi poetry to modern pop and rock sounds. You’re in for some surprises, dear listener! Plus a few songs for dads, since Father's Day is this weekend.

Great stuff as usual, Scott. I am really digging this Mohsen Namjoo track. Keep spinning the good spin.
