Wo'Pop Spotlight on Iran

On Jan. 8, 2020, DJ Darek Mazzone hosted a special edition of Wo' Pop centering on the multitude of music from the Iranian Music Scene. Throughout the show, Mazzone spotlights different eras and genres of Iranian music – from pop and hip-hop to traditional Persian folk music, fusion, rock, jazz, blues, and more. 

"In light of the current political machinations which serve to distract us from our humanity I'll be focusing on the rich and complex music of Iran  tonight," Mazzone says. "This is Persia, one of the first Civilizations on the planet and the musical repertoire covers beautiful improvisational technique, poignant indie rock, hard hitting ethnic hip hop, and some of the finest vocal work ever recorded." 

Listen to the archive of the broadcast to the right. This stream expires Jan. 21.

While the "Long Songs" programs are no longer available via the 14-day Streaming Archive, you can revisit them now now using KEXP Remixed (beta).
