Every week we will take off and travel to a new destination where we will discover some fascinating things about our musical world. Whether it is the classical world of London, the theater music of Japan, or the drums of Ghana, we will discuss pieces, important musical topics, and interview composers and song writers. Our world is a buffet of music and it is time to eat!
We're an indie podcast, which means the two of us do all the work that goes into producing the show - that includes researching, recording, editing, and publishing episodes, working with advertisers, creating Patreon content and rewards, designing, sourcing and shipping merchandise, fixing tech snafus, maintaining the website and blog, social media, responding to listener emails...you name it! Sounds of the world has truly become a full-time job for us and we couldn't do it without your support!

Today we have a wonderful double guest episode. We have the honor to speak two quickly rising stars in the contemporary classical music world, Anahita Abbasi and Niloufar Iravani. We talk about their music, their lives in Iran as well as in America/Europe, and the Iranian Female Composers Association (IFCA). In our discussions we destroy myths Americans might have of Iran and bridge the distance between our two countries.
