 Mamak Khadem (1 Albums, 4 Tracks)


LOCATION:Los Angeles, CA
  • Mamak Khadem, Hamid Saeid (Santur)
Iranian-born singer Mamak Khadem has been a force on LA's massive Persian music scene for many years. Formerly with the crossover band Axiom of Choice, Mamak Khadem's new solo CD Jostojoo shows her rootsier side. The CD is grounded in Persian classical tradition and especially Farsi language poetry, both ancient and modern. But there are also significant melodic and rhythmic strains from other countries in the region. And from the rest of the world too: Mamak's collaborators include Persian classical musicians but also jazz / improvisers like Eyvind Kang and Skuli Sverrison. (She also sometimes steps out of the art-music
world entirely to do soundtrack work, including contributions to TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Battlestar Gallactica.)
