Azam Ali's Electronic Phantoms

Iranian singer Azam Ali is a voice that launched a dozen love affairs. She was the sound of the world fusion group, Vas and then the Persian fusion band, Niyaz. Her intoxicating, sensual voice is heard in dozens of films including Thor: The Dark World, 300, John Carter and Priest.  She takes her love of modern electronic music to create her new album, Phantoms, her first with all-English lyrics. It will be October’s CD of the MonthJohn Diliberto talks to Azam Ali about a sound born from social and political darkness and electronic grooves.
