We are very lucky to have Mehran Jalili come and speak (and play) for us this week! Mehran is an avant-garde Flamenco guitarist based in Chicago. His first album, entitled Angels of Persepolis, has gained him an international reputation and was chosen by UK’s Rainlores World of Music as the best world music album of 2010. His latest CD Subterranea (2012) is a concept album along the vein of progressive/alternative/psychedelic rock influenced by the Flamenco guitar; many describe Mehran’s new 4-piece band as Pink Floyd under the spell of flamenco.
