khastegari music video

I thought I would post a music video that has a funny take on a “khastegari” mentioned in Shideh’s post. Unfortunately, while the lyrics are in Farsi, I think the video itself will give our non-Farsi speaking readers a visual image of this tradition. It is by a young band – the Abjeez – comprised of Iranian and non-Iranian individuals who have come together to give a creative twist to Iranian pop music and who have enjoyed great success in recent years. Enjoy!

    This is so funny. Reminded me of my first meeting with my husband. Although our initial meeting was with our parents in a similar style it was more informal since it was in my college apartment. I remember the moment I gave him a glass of water, just like the girl gives the guy a glass of tea. Little did I know that would be the first of many glasses I would serve him. Shideh, I also told my mother I didn’t want to serve the tea. Instead she did 🙂
