Veggiestan’s Greatest Hits #5 Tehrangeles


Some toe-tapping, medallion-jingling, hip-gyrating, short-skirted Persian pop to jiggle away your Autumn blues. All Iranian singers are contractually obliged to produce a song called ‘Dokhtar Irani’ (which just means Iranian Girl). Obligingly the dokhtar Irani in the video are giving a very good demo of ‘how to dance Persian’.
This is Andy, by the way. Gotta love Andy: he’s kind of stuck in the early 80s. But he has a great voice, and makes music to which most people actually want to dance.
Ah: Tehrangeles. So called because there are so many former inhabitants of Tehran living in LA.
