Mahsa Vahdat & Might Sam McClain
Forget about Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell. Persia meets the blues in the unlikely duet of Mahsa Vahdat, a Tehran-born singer steeped in the highly ornamented traditions of Iranian music, and Sam McLain, a Louisiana-raised gospel and r&b shouter. The duo simultaneously sings convincingly in English and Farsi on their convincing second album, A Deeper Tone of Longing: Love Duets Across Civilizations.
