Jazmahalis is a band that mixes elements of Persian folk music (mahali) with jazz. We recorded two albums: one of original pop and dance tunes, and another based on the poetry of Nima Ushij and Fereidoon Moshiri.
Band/artist history
Hamid and Farhad thought of the name Jazmahalis in the late 1980s. With the addition of bassman Paymon, percussionist Richard, and drummer Mitch the lineup was perfect. Our first album (pop/dance) was easy to record, since we were already tight from playing a lot in clubs. The second album was based on poems by Persian poets Nima and Moshiri, and was altogether different (darker).
