RANA FARHAN ANNOUNCES UPCOMING SHOWS IN CELEBRATION OF NEW ALBUM

Sensational Iranian music artist, Rana Farhan is proud to announce that she will be performing in New York and Paris in August and September, respectively. Rana has also released a new video for the song 'Was Not Was' the first single from her new album 'Talkin' About Love'.

After successfully performing in cities such as San Francisco, Toronto, Strasbourg, Dubai, and Los Angeles, Rana will be performing at Drom, 85 Avenue A, N.Y.C, N.Y, 10009 on August 23rd, and at Studio L'ermitage, 8 Rue de L'ermitage 75020, Paris on September 9th.

Rana's new album 'Talkin' About Love' has garnered worldwide adulation and recognition. She remains one of modern music's most original voices and she does it all in her own trademark style. Combining her love of blues and jazz with the sultry passion of her Persian lyrics, Rana brings the listener into the realm of true, of-the-minute originality.

"Rana Farhan grew up in Tehran, lives in New York, sings in Persian and English, sounds like Billie Holiday, adores blues and jazz, and is in almost every other way a unique cultural product of both her native Iran and her adopted country, the United States. No one else does what Farhan does on albums and in concerts: She combines the rich oral traditions of Persia with the rich oral traditions that originated in black, American culture. Farhan's sultry, hybridized song book is a revelation to anyone who thinks they already know the full range of blues music." - Jonathan Curial KQED San Francisco
