A concert for Delia Derbyshire’s 80th Birthday.
Roshi (feat. Pars Radio)
Iranian traditional songs and London electronica.
Roshi Nasehi is a Welsh born singer-composer of Iranian parentage with a strong track record in live performance, collaboration, recording and workshops. As a child she sang 80s pop, songs from musicals and Welsh folk at school and in local choirs. At home her parents played old tapes of Iranian folk and pop music and her father resumed traditional violin playing, which influenced early compositions. She also learned piano and in 1997 won a place at RWCMD to study composition and sang in the jazz ensemble directed by Keith Tippett. She moved to London in 2000 and before long formed her much acclaimed “experimental, electronic Welsh-Iranian folk pop” project Roshi Featuring Pars Radio with prolific percussionist/producer Graham Dowdall. It’s an unorthodox sound world combining Roshi’s intimate singing style with Gagarin’s experimental electronic powers to create a unique genre-crossing, ‘exotic, folktronica landscape.’
Roshi has received several commissions including the Belonging exhibition at the Museum Of London, BBC Radio 3’s The Verb, So & So Circus Theatre, Birds Eye View, the Southbank 2012 WOW festival and the British Council for whom she presented major public sound art pieces in Kuwait in May 2014.
