Ma ki hastim?

Every summer Shoosh throws a party and invites his friends from all over to his house in Seattle. The first one I went to was in 2003 [see: For everyone]. A key component of these parties has been music. Shoosh and many of his friends are just crazy about music. You go to one of these parties and you’ll hear guys with a guitar or on the piano playing anything from Googoosh to the Beatles to Oasis. This year it was not just a party but the “7th Annual Seattle Music Jam 080208” with performances by Shoosh’s local Iranian, American, Arab and Russian friends, and ending with sets by two of the hottest Iranian rock bands, Kiosk and 127. Other artists included Anoush Khazeni, Pouya Mehrabian, Alireza Kamran, Navid, Mehrdad, Amin Emam, Ali Danesh, and Kia Payvan. During my four nights at Shoosh’s house, I must have heard someone singing or humming 127’s ” Man Kiam” (Who am I) about 500 times. It was kind of appropriate, since we come from so many backgrounds and not firmly rooted anywhere. Mehdi Karami has beautifully conveyed the mood in these amazingly rich pictures. Thank you Shoosh for all the love and joy! — Jahanshah Javid 123456789 next › last »
