Afta Hill teams w/ ASADI on Persian music kissed late summer pop video “Citrus Dream”

Afta Hill and ASADI are Persian diaspora artists from Los Angeles and Toronto respectively, coming fresh off a live performance at The Ford in LA. Their collaboration, “Citrus Dream, is a smooth, nostalgic R&B pop track infused with traditional Persian instrumentation and inflections.

As the title suggests, the lyrics play with the comparison of passionate love and the refreshing, thirst quenching flavours of citrus. A highlight of the track is the ear-grabbing sitar riff played by ASADI which gives the song a danceable groove, unique from other contemporary sounds in this genre.
