Mitra Sumara Fontana

Thanks to all of you who came out a couple of weeks ago at Clemente Velez to see and shake to Mitra Sumara, that rhythmic, psychedelic Persian band. We will be playing again on Thursday, Feb. 9, at 11 p.m. at Fontana's, 105 Eldridge St. in Manhattan.

We play Persian pop music of the 1960s and ’70s, tunes that shook the air before the Islamic revolution rolled into Iran.

This vibrant music has deep grooves and funky breaks and dark, keening melodies. This music is challenging and rewarding, and it all fits together like clockwork.

///////Hot Farsi funk - Persian psych - bangin' dance grooves from beyond!\\\\\\

Mitra Sumara is an eight-piece super group of musicians dedicated to the vibrant sound of 60s/70s Persian funk & pop hits. The sound of pre-Revolutionary Iran mixes the beats of Fela Kuti, Salsa, and Disco with Mid-East melodies, a cool LA breeze, and tragic poetry. Big beats, blaring brass, and wheezing electric organ.

We are here to help you get your Persian groove on!

Julian Maile – guitar (Loser’s Lounge)
