A Contemporary Iranian Music Event & Maria Kheirkhah

Most Iranian parents want their children to be lawyers or doctors, so how do aspiring musicians fare with their parents when making out-of-the-ordinary career choices and what does contemporary music mean to most young Iranians?

Fari Bradley reports from the Contemporary Iranian Music event at the Camden Underworld and interviews artist Maria Kheirkhah live in the studio about her career choice to become an artist, collecting air in the Iranian desert for her projects and her current exhibition the Psychology of Fear. Featured are Farinaz Entegham, Ali Charmi on hip hop and faith, and the father of one of the members of Simorgh.

This show was originally broadcast from Resonancefm studios in London on June 16th 2008, produced and presented by Fari Bradley
