Habibi’s debut self-titled album will be released on vinyl via Burger Records on January 28th.
Habibi, the four-piece rockers from Brooklyn, are getting ready to release their debut self-titled album via Burger Records on January 28th.
‘Habibi’ is an arabic term of affection. Rahill Jamalifard, singer and founder of Habibi, described her influences to V Magazine :
My influences are directly related to my ancestry: Iran, gyspies, nomads, the inspiration of poets like Hafiz, Saadi and Rumi, my travels within the country, its people, the culture, and the music I grew up listening too. Unlike so many of my friends, my parents didn’t have record collections of classic rock, blues and jazz. They instead had countless cassettes of sad songs sung by old Iranian singers, and VHS tapes of music shows filmed pre-1979 Revolution. -Rahill Jamalifard, V Magazine
