Music & clubs
Helsinki-based group BaranBand breaks musical genre boundaries by combining Middle Eastern folk music with energetic and lively beat full of flavor. In the songs of this six-member group lead by two brothers, Gian and Marouf Majid, echo the Iranian tar and tanbur lutes, Kurd and Persian notes as well as modern rhythms.
“Baran” in Kurdish means rain but this group doesn’t bring rain clouds with it. The name symbolizes the freshness of raindrops and the beginning of something new.
