Meet the festival headliners
The vocal performance mirrors this vibrant sonic blend by presenting a mixture of roots styles such as the once popular ‘Bahr-e-Taveel’ and other traditional/folk singing styles with hints of modern inspiration. All this is delivered in a dynamic performance, which incorporates elements of dance and movement.
Ajam is a cultural experience of Iranian Roots Music.
The intention of their work has always been to be an inspiring alternative force in the Persian pop music/culture. When the sisters started their band for more than 10 years ago, Iran had been ``closed`` to western culture for almost 30 years and the Persian pop music had become somehow stagnant. Melody & Safoura who were raised in Sweden and had got the chance to nourish their creativity in freedom wanted to make a change in this matter and they did!
