Buddahead, New York City rock band fronted by Iranian born singer Raman Kia, release Iranian Democracy, an EP featuring the singles Sour Grapes and Burning Out.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2009 -- Buddahead, New York City rock band fronted by Iranian born singer Raman Kia, release Iranian Democracy, an EP inspired by the death of Neda Agha-Sultan, the young Iranian woman, who died during the recent democratic uprising.
Guided by the words of Seth Godin's book Tribes and inspired to create a soundtrack for Iranian Democracy, Buddahead's third release is accompanied also by a video for the lead single Sour Grapes - a compilation of the highest ranked google images for the search term Iranian Election.
Raman Kia, who was born in Iran during the Iran/Iraq war and was sent to England to be educated and to escape the war describes Iranian Democracy:
"A single slide, a single move, a single raised hand in the room could shift the lines that change the whole world too. Iranian Democracy is essentially the soundtrack of change. Iranians are peeling layers of life from layers of death, but in death there is life and it is a new life they are fighting for."
