What’re your thoughts on Persian Swedish world pop fusion? Nothing? Well, let’s change your mind. Iranian-born sisters Melody and Safoura Safavi formed Abjeez in 2005. The result? A totally wild ride. Known for their subversive take on taboo subjects in a range of stylistic attitudes, Abjeez are across the board all over the board and therefore borderless. A mashup of reggae, ska, and rock, the Safavi sisters (and respective bandmates) manage a hypnotic blend of play and power you don’t have to speak the language to feel Abjeez’s unique global groove.
