Saeid Shanbehzadeh & Rostam Mirlashari: Afro-Iranian Music Last autumn they brought the house down at the Apollo Theatre in New York and in San Francisco! Successful and creative collaboration continues between the Paris-based musician and dancing virtuoso Saeid Shanbehzadeh and Stockholm-based singer Rostam Mirlashari (known as The Prince of Balochi Music). Both are leading figures in music from their respective areas, and tour all around the world. Both come from southern Iran, from Bushehr in Bushehr Province and Baluchistan, areas north and south of the Persian Gulf where there is a strong African influence as a relic of the slave trade. They and their band take us on a winding journey where exciting Afro-Iranian music meets blues and jazz. Their first album “Pour Afrigha” is being released in the Autumn 2017.
