The poet Rumi referred to “the place where everything
is music.” Mamak Khadem, a classically trained
Persian singer who has studied her art in both Iran and
her adopted United States, helps keep that place
in Iranian culture alive, vital, and growing. A lead singer
of the cross-cultural fusion ensemble Axiom Of Choice
and vibrant solo artist, Mamak Khadem has performed
at major concert venues, including the Skirball
Cultural Center, the Greek Theater, the Smithsonian
Museum, and at festivals worldwide. In her recent
album Jostojoo (Forever Seeking), Mamak Khadem
continues her exploration of Persian poetry set to
carefully chosen melodies from her culture’s far-reaching
folk and classical repertoire.
