Forever Under Construction

Global Zoo

Posted in Iranians, Music by homeyra on October 19, 2008

Release of a new album by Kiosk. You can hear the first track: “The happy-go-lucky pragmatism”. I will post the lyrics in English.

Global Zoo is how KIOSK sees the world today; the dialogue of civilizations apparently hasn’t worked too well and as a consequence the world has turned into a zoo, as opposed to a jungle where the inhabitants at least have their freedom. Even though we all left Iran many years ago, we still haven’t completely settled down, and maybe that’s why we have been so attracted to and influenced by Gypsy Jazz music on the new album.“

“[…] the lyrics of Arash Sobhani (lead vocalist , songwriter and guitarist) continues the social commentary on a wide variety of issues affecting the daily lives of Iranians all over the world.”

A folk song in this album features the great Namjoo as a guest vocalist.

    ممنون محبت شما. از بخت بد که در خواندن زبان شکسپیر از حسنی بیسوات چیزی کم ندارم.
    تخت و بخت تان برقرار باد.
