RadioJavan brings Persian pop to Vegas
Las Vegas is home to plenty of radio-sponsored festivals, from the high-profile, nationally televised iHeartRadio Music Festival to smaller events staged by local radio stations, and the city’s status as an international tourist hub makes it the perfect host for outlets that cater to a diverse demographic. So Persian-language online music service RadioJavan should be right at home hosting a few of its most popular acts at the House of Blues, creating a destination event for fans no matter where they’re based.
Hosted by RadioJavan’s DeeJay AL, the show features Iranian rappers and singers Sasy and Behzad Leito, and singer Eddie Attar, all staples of RadioJavan programming. They’re all at the forefront of Persian pop, reaching global audiences. Sasy came up as an underground rapper in Iran before being exposed to an international fan base, and Leito has been compared to superstar rapper Drake in his vocal style and his connection with his fans. Those fans in the U.S. will get a rare chance to see these artists up close, thanks in no small part to the international reach of the Las Vegas entertainment scene.
