I interviewed Omid Walizadeh who recently released the stunning album Modern Persian Speech Sounds. We discuss his journey from the underground Los Angeles hip hop scene to a rediscovery of his childhood treasury of Iranian cassette tapes, the recent explosion of vintage Iranian music on the global circuit, and a certain iconic Persian ice cream shop in the heart of LA.
Mashti Malone is a famous Persian ice cream shop in the heart of Los Angeles. Featured flavors include rosewater saffron, orange blossom and pistachio, and sour cherry sorbet. Join us!
