Norouz/Nowruz mixtape by Rebel Up SebCat

Norooz or Nowruz, also known as the Persian New Year, is celebrated every year on 20/21 March in different countries around the world such as Iran, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, India, Iraq, Syria, Turkey and many more.

It’s all about celebrating spring, a new beginning of the year. Families normally celebrate this event together in parks or in their houses in a “festival-like” atmosphere. Unfortunately, with the current crisis, many countries and communities are in quarantine and many families can not celebrate together.

The Huna sounds collective is all about celebrating good times. They decided to do a live stream for Norooz and invite local & international DJ’s to play from home, featuring Ramin&Reda, Aso Asin, Mafi, Arian Zand, Kuryokin & Rebel Up SebCat.

This Norooz mixtape is made with Iranian, Kurdish, Iraqi and North Syrian sounds, nowruz mobarak! Also up for download, check it out >
