Considered to be the most influential Iranian rock band since the 1979 Revolution, KIOSK is known for its smart and satirical lyrics, as well as its unique sound that seamlessly blends rock, blues, gypsy jazz, and Iranian folk music.
After Kiosk was prevented from performing in public or publishing recordings due to their "inappropriate" lyrics, the band members re-grouped outside Iran in 2005.
Named "Best Blues Band of 2008" by the World Academy of Arts, Literature, and Media, Kiosk has since released three albums and toured North America, Europe and Australia.
Kiosk will be joined by notable guest musicians, including Paul Mehling of Hot Club of San Francisco.
