Los Angeles producer Maral reveals deep roots in a sample-laden mix that pays tribute to her Persian heritage.

It’s true that Open End rotates through the deepest creative corners of the globe. This time around, Los Angeles producer and classically trained Iranian setar player Maral coasts onto the airwaves to share an intricately woven mix of traditional Persian music and her own productions. She also highlights the work of other artists who are shaping sounds by dipping into distinct cultural reservoirs. Your host Frosty opens and closes the episode with music from Sudan, Palestine, Uganda, Jamaica, Paraguay, Trinidad, Benin and beyond.
