Pointless video post – ‘بندر لندن’ by عجم

Iranian-British roots band Ajam عجم has so far only put out one full-length album, Raghse Mardooneh رقص مردونه, but it’s a high-quality one all the same! This one was recommended to me by Dr. Amir Azarvan over at Amirica. It is a strange mix of folk, beat and hip-hop elements that, to be honest, took some time to grow on me; but grow on me it did. This one - written about the police of London, or so I would imagine (I have only just begun learning Persian) - is a particularly contagious earworm. Happy listening, gentle readers!
