On ‘Ground Groove', Maral's third full-length release, the LA-based Iranian-American producer and DJ draws inspiration from a vast personal archive of Iranian folk, classical music, and pop recordings. Building upon the mission of introducing audiences to 'new ways of perceiving music' (a quest begun on 2020's 'Push'), on this October's record Maral continues honing the signature 'folk club' sound she has developed as a live DJ. Collecting, dissecting, and re-purposing Iranian sonic fragments, her work is akin to a sort of dance-floor ethnomusicology, meant to transport whichever listener; from the one in the club to the one in the train.
