Every week Worldly Rhythms broadcasts from URF, the student led radio at the University of Sussex, and on Platform B in Brighton. The aim is simple. During one hour we explore a specific genre from a country whilst accounting for the socio-political climate that has affected the music during historical and contemporary periods. Have a listen and enjoy!
This week we take a look at Iranian Contemporary Jazz. A fantastic scene that combines Middle-Eastern sounds with Jazz and its variations.
