Album Notes
Bamahang Productions is set to release the highly-anticipated KIOSK’s third studio album, “Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani” (Global Zoo) on November 14, 2008. The new album features ten tracks varying in music style from Gypsy Jazz to Waltz and from Argentinean Tango to Blues. Although the music of the album is a big departure from the Underground Blues/Rock sound of the previous two KIOSK albums, the lyrics of Arash Sobhani (lead vocalist , songwriter and guitarist) continues the social commentary on a wide variety of issues affecting the daily lives of Iranians all over the world.

“Global Zoo is how KIOSK sees the world today; the dialogue of civilizations apparently hasn’t worked too well and as a consequence the world has turned into a zoo, as opposed to a jungle where the inhabitants at least have their freedom. Even though we all left Iran many years ago, we still haven’t completely settled down, and maybe that’s why we have been so attracted to and influenced by Gypsy Jazz music on the new album.“ said Arash Sobhani.

KIOSK recorded the new album over the course of four months at the cutting edge private FM Recorders Studio in Emeryville, CA. Produced by Sep V and mastered by Adam Ayan of Gateway Mastering, the new album sees KIOSK collaborating with notable guest musicians, including drummer Pat Spurgeon of Rogue Wave, and guitarist Paul Mehling founder of the Jazz Hot Club of San Francisco. The album also includes the track "Yarom Bia", a Shirazi folk song, popular in Tajikistan, featuring the controversial Iranian musician and singer Mohsen Namjoo, as guest vocalist.

“Pragmatism e Eshghi”, the first single from the new album will be released as a free download worldwide on October 17, 2008 through KIOSK’s official website, Limited edition pre-release CDs will be sold starting October 25, 2008, at the KIOSK concert in Toronto. Prominent Flamenco/Jazz guitarist Babak Amini, will also be performing with KIOSK at their San Francisco (Nov 14th) and Los Angeles (Nov 16th) concerts.

KIOSK is known as an Iranian Blues/Rock/Jazz band, established by a few friends in a ‎basement in Iran, now all living abroad. ‎The band members are Arash Sobhani (guitar & vocals), Ali Kamali (bass guitar), Ardalan Payvar (keyboards), Babak Khiavchi (guitar), Shahrouz Molaei (drums). KIOSK is often noted for its biting critical social and political, but humorous lyrics.

With the release of their third album, KIOSK is also launching their North American “Global Zoo” tour, as follows:

October 25, 2008 - Toronto, Canada The Opera House
November 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA Mezzanine (with special guest Babak Amini)
November 16, 2008 - Los Angeles, CA El Rey Theatre (with special guest Babak Amini)

Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani (Global Zoo)
I first heard this band on Public Radio and was intrigued. I don't understand a word of Farsi but have really enjoyed the album. I am particularly by the Persians singing the blues in Farsi, influenced by Leonard Cohen. What a combination! I also bought a copy for a Persian friend and will be curious to hear what he has to say about it.


wow keeps getting better!!
I own all Kiosk albums.. I find this a bit different from the first 2 but Arash's voice and lyrics plus the amazing band can not go wrong.. I love every tracks. recommended to all REAL music lovers.
by the way this is my favorite quote.. no idea how he comes up with these. it's definitely talent : )

"az oon tarzan e bi orzeh ke raft o vareseh jangal shode chita!!!

Always Kiosk fan

Glob all a zoo
Kiosk has found its "own" style in this album. The mixture of "spanish" guitar, amazing lyrics and persian melodies makes its tracks astonishing. I love "Agha Nigah Dar" and "Charkheshe pooch" so much. It has the smell of Tehran still so very much! Love you CD baby!

Great music
This is very original and new music to me. I think Kiosk listened a lot to Dire Straits, but also created their own sound which - with the influences of great blues artists - is simply great to listen to.
I don't understand the lyrics, but sometimes I read the translations and they are also very good.
I first listened to the other album of Kiosk, Eshghe Sorat, and I think that one is better than this one, so I'll need to order that one too.
I could listen to this music many, many times and not get tired of it. So I really hope this great bands keeps developing itself and keeps on making great music!
