Roshi

And Stars (feat. Pars Radio)

Geo Records

Released: 21st July 2008 | 4 track asian underground ep
...Born in Wales to Iranian parents, Roshi Nasehi is a singer-songwriter performing her own evocative songs alongside some of the Iranian songs she was brought up listening to. Her own songs reflect her origins, influences and experiences in a personal and unique way accompanied by unusual keyboard arrangements and increasingly her band Pars Radio. Her music is informed too by a wide range of other influences ranging from experimental electronica to the great singer-songwriters. She was recently the Guest Artist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Open Ear Ensemble for a performance at the Festival Hall. Her band Pars Radio is a unique collaboration, essentially between herself and prolific sound artist Graham Dowdall (aka Dids, Gagarin). Dids has spent the last 2 decades on the experimental edge -making avantrock, electronica , free music etc and working with underground legends including Nico, John Cale and Pere Ubu. He currently makes electronica as Gagarin. Pars Radio also features cello contributions from avant performer Richard Thomas ( a member of Now ) and classical cellist Rachel Threlfall. It's an unusual sound world combining Roshi's intimate singing style , Dids-Gagarin's experimental electronic powers and haunting string layers to create a unique genre-crossing, exotic, folktronica landscape. The band's debut E.P will be coming out in July 2008 on Dids-Gagarin's own GEO label. In 2007 Roshi and Dids presented 'Swimming with Rachid Khan' at the Museum of London was specially put together as part of the museum's excellent belonging exhibition.
