Minneapolis-based Iranian singer, daf player (Iranian-Kurdish frame drum) and fashion artist Aida Shahghasemi moved to the USA 15 years ago at age of 13. But she’s kept her connection with Iranian culture, music and poetry.
Aida has been playing daf since the age of 13, and in 2003 she started singing seriously. She worked with Marketa Irglova as a daf player and offering backing vocals on Marketa’s records, and she also contributed to Glen Hansard’s debut album.
“Wind Between the Horse’s Ears” (نسیمی میان گوشهای اسب) is her own debut full-length released last year, full of emotions, beauty and her heritage.
