Behrooz Azad

Iranian musician Behrooz Azad sends us his selection of music currently being made by Iranians in Malaysia, of which he is one. You can hear experimental instrumentation, strains of exploratory electronica and even psychedelia here, while predictable genres such as rock (soft and hard) are also very present.  We also asked Behrooz, tens of thousands of Iranians have moved to Malaysia to make a new life, or to study and return. How how have they adapted to the climate in South Asia, and what interesting fusions are they producing?
