Ep.4: The Islamic Republic's War on Iranian Culture

Iran has an ancient and celebrated culture, one that has sustained it through millennia. In the nation's toughest times, including multiple occupations, it has been its culture that has sustained it. Is that the case today with the Islamic Republic's occupation? Where does Iranian culture go from here? We're joined by celebrated Iranian artist, Arash Sobhani, to discuss. He's the founding member and lead singer and guitarist of the underground band Kiosk and a long-time advocate for human rights since he was forced into exile. He is an accomplished producer, musician, writer, and architect who got his Masters in the field from the Isfahan University of Art. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nufdiran/support
