Pioneers of Iran's underground music movement, are coming back to TORONTO. Kiosk is praised for its sharp and satirical lyrics as well as its unique blend of musical styles, from rock to gypsy jazz to Iranian folk. Their new album Stereo Tull Presents is out now. "Studio Tull" is a strange name but is familiar to Iranian music lovers after the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. For almost a decade, "Studio Tull" was one of the most famous underground names to distribute music under a government that led a cultural purge similar to Mao Zedong in China.

Kiosk (Persian: کیوسک‎) is a rock band formed in Tehran in 2003, known for its blend of musical styles and its wry lyrics confronting Iranian cultural angst. The name of the band, Kiosk, stems from the original formation of the group in Tehran, when its members gathered together in any possible makeshift space or “Kiosk” to play their music without fear of arrest.

"Kiosk's stinging political satire is hidden within its blues and folksy sound...Their lyrics are a social commentary on the issues that affect the daily lives of Iranians all over the world."BBC World
