  • Shahin Najafi

    Shahin Najafi is an Iranian musician, singer, rapper, songwriter, and social activist. He has been referred to as being one of the forefronters in the Iran's modern hip hop scene with topical songs dealing with issues such as theocracy, poverty, sexism, censorship, child labor, execution, drug addiction, and homophobia. He strives to use poetic, literary, philosophical, and political elements in his music.

    Mehran Jalili Quartet

    Iranian born Flamenco guitarist Mehran's "skillful guitar work and imaginative compositional approach shine through…resulting in an intriguing mélange of romantic, Middle Eastern, Spanish, Latin, Brazilian, smooth jazz, and experimental themes and tonalities with a political edge." - Guitar Player Magazine
