Israeli Singer and Actor Liraz Finds Her Iranian Roots in Hollywood

on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Israel’s Liraz was inspired to musically explore her Iranian-Jewish roots in an unlikely place - Hollywood. While acting in films with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Sean Penn, she discovered LA's huge Iranian community. Soon she was singing in Farsi, and on her latest album Zan (Glitterbeat), collaborating with Iranian musicians. Liraz joins us ahead of gigs at the Barbès in the Woods Festival Saturday August 21st and outdoors at Lincoln Center Tuesday evening August 24th.
