Radio Javan is an online radio station broadcasting Persian music 24/7. From traditional singers to folk, from hip-hop to house, there is not a single rhythm out of it. I discovered it while having a coffee at the Cinema Café. The music was really good so I asked the manager what CD was playing. He looked at me as if I were an E.T., probably wondering what a CD was, because, of course, he was streaming the Dubways Podcast from Radio Javan, something way cooler than playing an old CD.
For a contemporary and not so Persian touch, listen to Dubways, Tehranto and Tehran Night. You can check the DJs Instagram and Facebook feeds, know more about hipster life in Iran (but also in Toronto and Los Angeles, cities with a huge Iranian diaspora). It is a cool way to get to Iran feeling more like a local and being able to strike up conversations with young Iranians at the many cafés recommended here at TravelVince.
