Mitra Sumara

 

Mitra Sumara is New York City’s only Farsi Funk group. This international party band revives the vibrant Persian pop and funk music silenced by the Iranian Revolution. The popular music of Iran in the 60s and 70s combined disco, funk, and Latin beats, with Middle Eastern melodies and poetic lyrics.

Mitra Sumara interprets hits by Iran’s beloved singers such as Googoosh, Soli, Leila Forouhar, and remakes intoxicating Southern Iranian Bandari beat tunes. The band is comprised of musicians drawn from New York’s indie-rock, jazz, and avant-garde communities.

Mitra will be accompanied by a special guest: virtuoso theremin player, Pamelia Stickney: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamelia_Kurstin
