Mitra Sumara is New York City’s only Farsi Funk group. This international party band revives the vibrant Persian pop and funk music silenced by the Iranian Revolution.
The popular music of Iran in the 60s and 70s combined disco, funk, and Latin beats with Middle Eastern melodies and poetic lyrics. Mitra Sumara interprets hits by Iran’s beloved singers such as Googoosh, Soli, Leila Forouhar, and remakes intoxicating Southern Iranian Bandari beat tunes. The band is comprised of musicians drawn from New York’s indie-rock, jazz, and avant-garde communities and was founded by singer Yvette Saatchi Perez Massoudi.
Tahdig is Mitra Sumara's debut album. Produced by Salmak Khaledi, of Iranian band 127, the diverse ten-track album showcases 70s Iranian pop and funk songs, spun with updated beats, modern production, NYC’s indie spirit, and psychedelic touches that is unquestionably Mitra Sumara. The band has taken forgotten music and has refreshed it with their own touch. Mitra Sumara is comprised of an all-star group consisting of Peter Zummo (trombone), Bill Ruyle (hammer dulcimer), Julian Maile (guitar), Jim Duffy (keyboards), Nikhil Yerawadekar (bass), Michael Evans (drums/congas), and Kaveh Haghtalab (drums/percussion). Album cover design by Iranian artist Homa Delvaray.
