Blade & Beard, the musical brotherhood of Anoosh & Arash
Throwing Party in Iran is generally forbidden & illegal. So it’s very complicated and very risky to do. Finding trustworthy people and managing the party, from location to equipment in Iran is very hard. The duo was always aware of the dangers these activities brought with them and they had to stay as far away as possible from the radical police force. Organising a party is a crime, and it is punished just as such. Anoosh being arrested several times and being beaten to near death, did not stop them to keep on going!
A 1000km away from Teheran they started a party inspired by “Burning Man” in the middle of the desert, back in 2008. Years of experience started attracting tourist and also the director of the documentary “Raving Iran”, Susanne Regina Meures.
She followed the parties and the life of the two boys and published the documentary “Raving Iran” in 2013
Anoosh and Arash were invited to travel to Switzerland and perform at Street parade, and decided to stay in Switzerland afterwards.
They started touring Europe once they received their Asylum and have played clubs such as Nordstern in Basel, Undercurrent in Amsterdam and will appear on major festivals such as Tomorrowland, Dockland Festival, Sonne Mond und Sterne and Lighthouse Festival.
Arash and Anoosh attracting a unique crowd through their passion and love for music are ones to watch.
