Some of the most heart warming stories are locked away, and despite having engineered at Resonancefm for a while, no one here knew of Shervin Shaeri‘s encounter with England in the 1990’s when he left impoverished Iran at the age of 9.
For Shervin eating rice with a spoon was normal and the aisles of Tescos were a lucid and hitherto unimagined dream. England was an alien projection for him, different from his own idea in which we would all have had long hair and talked of football…but he has found his feet here. Having studied sound art he is making his name quickly and already has set up a limited company providing audio, whilst putting out on songs on BBC Asian Network and entering the Eurovision song contest!
We discuss police, Asian men and music.
