ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Perhaps "world pop" best describes Abjeez music. The Abjeez unique
sound is influenced by wide mixture of world compositions mastered to
its' own description of original melody and songs. Abjeez music is
suited for everyone regardless of age, sex or cultural backgrounds. The
lashing passion behind Abjeez force is to award love, carry hope and
perhaps become a diverse musical alternative for future generations in Iran. The name Abjeez comes from the word Abjee, which is slang for “sister” in Iranian language Farsi. The Abjeez are sisters Safoura and Melody Safavi, backed by a colorful group of musicians from Sweden.

The Abjeez sisters, Safoura and Melody were born in Iran amongst a family of diverse musicians. Both sisters moved to Sweden along with their family in 1987. Looking up to their father’s passion for music combined with older brother Sufi’s love for guitar encouraged the sisters to start writing, and composing original music.

Having experienced living life in countries such as India, Sweden, Norway, England, Spain and United States has also had a great impact and influence on Abjeez music.

Safoura, the younger abjee, not only composes all their songs, but she has also been playing guitar and composing music since age 12. By 17 Safoura began studying music at Hvitfeldska Schol of music in Gothenburg/Sweden, and furthered her studies in the field of Flamenco guitar and song at the prestigious Fundacion Christina Heeren del arte flamenco, located in Seville/Spain.

After returning from Spain, Safoura decided to pursue a music project with her elder sister, which had already started 10 years before.

Safoura carefully handpicked the other four band members, describing them as a “musical goldmine.” Erland Hofgaard a skilled bassist and Paulo Murga a professional Chilean percussionist were introduced to Safoura several years back, while she was visiting Pitea University of Music during her brother’s studies for sound engineering. Both Erland and Paulo gave Safoura a great sense of musical approval by assuring her guaranteed collaboration with the Abjeez.

Flamenco guitarist Johan Moberg and drummer Robin Cochrane, were also discovered by Safoura years later in their home town of Ostersund/ Sweden.

Sufi, Safoura, Robin and Johan, who currently live in Ostersund have made the small town in to their own musical Mekka for creation and recording. Even though half of the Abjeez live far from each other, they often meet in Ostersund to catch up with practice and hit the road for performances from Europe to USA.

Such a great band!!! I just watched the latest music video on YOUTUBE and really enjoyed it. Even without the English subtitles the message was loud and clear. True, responsible and professional artists. They sound great live too. Bravo ABJEEZ!

Shahin

Great job, Well done
It takes a real producer to bring out the talent in great musicians. Listening to 2 different versions of some of the songs, one is struck by maturity and depth of production in the latter versions. The first album is fine for the Ibiza crowd, but for an old fart like me the fusion of reggae, Bossa Nova , Pop and…works wonderfully. Dastetoon dard nakone

Unlike anything I've heard before
This CD is excellent. The songs are fun and upbeat, and show the band's good sense of humor.

Welcome to 2007...
Dr. Suckdasti here (Abjeez Propaganda Minster). I’d like to thank every one of you for purchasing “Hameh”. Somehow the word “purchase” sounds bizarre when talking about release of a music album within our loving Iranian community! Much, much hard work went into making Hameh and our supporters played a GIGANTIC role in making this dream come true…for musicians and music lovers. Enough about that … what’s important here is that … ABOUT TIME WE MADE A MOVE IN IRANIAN MUSIC!!! This was a colossal step away from the clatter of that old-broken-record, which has become a nuisance for our ears. Again, thank you all and welcome to year-07.

Finally a break through for the Iranian POP music!
Abjeez! A slang term for sisters in Farsi, which happens to be the relationship between the two band members. Their video, titled "Eddeaa" is truly a masterpiece! It is set to happen in the ghAjAr era with superb customs and sets. The music seems to be all acoustic, and the sound to be a mixed Persian / Reggae beat with an absolute perfection in
creating the right syncopation in the Farsi lyrics to match the accompanying beat, not a trivial task with Farsi mind you! But more that the impeccable attention to the quality of the music, is the underlying message. A just and appropriate commentary on one of our cultures many
shortcomings - in this case "Eddeaa"! A youthful and honest approach to criticizing the elders and the culture they cultivate, makes not only for an amazingly entertaining song, but it moves beyond and echos what must be the voice of the immigrated (and perhaps the none immigrated) second generation Iranians. This is exciting as the first step to recovery is admission of guilt, and perhaps we are on the road of cultural recovery with the second and third generation Iranians. YES, there is hope!
