Iranian-Swedish band The Abjeez to make NYC Debut at IAAB Conference


(New York, NY) - Iranian Alliances Across Borders (IAAB) announced this week that as part of its Third International Conference on the Iranian Diaspora, it will be co-sponsoring the New York City debut of  The Abjeez in concert. The Abjeez (Persian slang for “sisters”), are led by Iranian-Swedish sisters Safoura and Melody Safavi who redefine the meaning of Persian Pop by mixing Persian music with other world influences, such as flamenco, reggae, and salsa.



Partnering with the NYU Persian Cultural Society, Beyond Persia and the Persian Arts Festival, IAAB bring the Abjeez live to the Rosenthal Pavilion at NYU’s Kimmel Center on April 28, 2007 at 8:00 PM. Following the show, IAAB’s official after-party will take place at Katra Lounge, with New York City’s DJ Rok spinning Persian and International music.


Already well-known in Europe for their innovative Persian lyrics and expressive style, the Abjeez are now beginning their US-tour, “Baabaat Keeyeh?” (Who’s Yo’ Daddy?) with performances in Washington, D.C., New York City, and San Francisco. Tickets for the Abjeez’s New York concert debut are on sale now: $15 for registered conference attendees, $25 for non-conference attendees in advance, and $30 for non-conference attendees at the door.  Tickets for both the The Abjeez concert and the conference are limited and are currently available on the IAAB conference website at


IAAB is a non-partisan, non-profit volunteer organization with a young, dedicated staff spread across the United States, Europe and Iran. IAAB works to raise awareness of the Iranian community and culture, and to connect Iranians and encourage leadership, with an emphasis on the younger generation.
