LOKAL AFFAIR: Tiny Mix Tapes REVIEW / PREMIERE

“Lokal Affair’s debut EP, Seremunia, contains the soothing everythingness of daytime city noise, and the echoes of the blacklight nighttime stars blotted out by the rising sun during the walk home from the club. He talks about chakras and is inspired by life in the desert (something I know absolutely nothing about), and he channels this into his mesmerizing flurry of beats, shakes, shivers, tablas, voices, and quakes. ”

Saint Abdullah is a project by two Iranian brothers based in Brooklyn and Tehran, who create sounds largely inspired by the religious, political, and cultural history of Iran.

With The Sounds of Evil, Saint Abdullah passionately and unapologetically revisit the roots of their childhood in war-torn post-Islamic revolution Iran. These are family stories—of martyrdom, of loss, and of the tragedies of war, pieced together through aggressive sound collage, cultural sample archeology, and rhythmic structure.

Driven by spliced samples of the thundering sound of see-ne za-ni (ritualistic self flagellation or chest beating), the cry of Shia orators, distorted howls, vintage news clips, and a molten and pummeling pulse, Saint Abdullah twist and renew a sense of time and space. At once channeling and challenging these times that we live in.

This is political music, this is sacred music, and for most of us in the west, this is new music.

Raised in a conservative Shia Muslim family between Iran, Canada, and the UK, Saint Abdullah’s most prominent exposure to music came from family visits to the mosque. Particularly during the holy month of Muharram, where Shia orators would lead mass ceremonies commemorating the martyrdom of Husayn, the grandson of the prophet Muhammad, in the Battle of Karbala in 680 CE.

For the two Iranian brothers, there’s no question that Saint Abdullah formed out of a deep frustration with the way the West perceives—and treats Muslims and the Islamic faith. Their hope is that through music, they can help inform a larger inter-cultural dialogue—to build compassion in the way humans deal with issues surrounding race, religion, culture.

Boomarm Nation feature for Italian Radio Gwen

Thanks to Radio Gwendolyn & Italian radio DJ  Silvia Malnati for putting this Boomarm Nation feature together. We hope to see you one day soon Italy! Below is an excerpt from our interview..

Q: “what is your “technique” in finding talents in the most faraway places of the world?”

A: “Actually there is no technique. I believe that we have all linked through the power of music. All of the connections have been very natural and organic releationships that have developed over time. We don’t do a lot of hype promotion. So things move slow and organic. There is a spiritual connection that happens with sound and music and I believe that that is what has brought the Boomarm crew together. That and hard work and good communication and being willing to take risks for something you believe in. It’s really beyond words.” 

FAMILY ALBUM 2017

Blessings to all the people of the world. May we unite aside our differences and together find peace and strength amongst the tyrants.
