The Iranian Expressway Songs

Afshin's musical journey began in quaternary order when he began to learn saxophone and piano in Minneapolis. The Afrosheens project commenced 7 years ago in Minneapolis, when Beheshti purchased a 4-track tape recorder and began making tapes for friends.

In 1998, after moving to Tallahassee, he released a limited edition CD, "No Photos", and put together a four-piece group to perform his compositions onstage. Up until that time, Beheshti had only played live with jazz groups. During 1999, Afshin played solo shows using pre-recorded keyboard tracks as his backup band.

In January 2000 he released The Afrosheens second album "The Iranian Expressway." He gathered a new ensemble together, featuring numerous talents from local Tallahassee bands, to perform material from "The Iranian Expressway" live.

On 7/24/01 he released his third album "Welcome To My Wonderful Show." Recently he has stripped the live shows to a three piece.

With this line up The Afrosheens will be playing the 2001 CMJ Music Marathon.

Here are some reviews from the second and third albums:

"Strange and Beautiful" -Team Clermont

"Beheshti's influences are jumbled together in colorful profusion... This CD is lo-fi in the best way --unadorned by the want to conform to any known formula." -Tallahassee Democrat

"... can either be taken for off centered narcissism, or high-minded conceptualism, until you realize Beheshti has quite a talent for arrangement. On repeated listening, what seems to be feckless meandering takes on a definite pattern. I'm reminded of bands like Guided by Voices and Thinking Fellers Union #424. Rhythm machine, mandolin, super-distorted guitars, real drums, bass and acoustic guitars morph and swirl with different styles. The outcome is both amusing and confounding. Syd Barret fans should find this fun." -Pulse of the Twin Cities

"...the product is an album with some really cool songs"
