Abjee is Persian slang for sister and that’s just what they are "The Abjeez", the sisters Melody & Safoura Safavi.
Although they started writing songs in the late 90s they didn't form their band until 2005.
The intention of their work has always been to be an inspiring alternative force in the Persian pop music/culture.
When the sisters started their band for more than 10 years ago, Iran had been "closed" to western culture for almost 30 years and the Persian pop music had become somehow stagnant. Melody & Safoura who were raised in Sweden
and had got the chance to nourish their creativity in freedom wanted to make a change in this matter and they did!
After a few successful years of touring in Europe, Canada & U.S.A. the sisters decided to re-shape the band in order to be able to explore new artistic ventures. Safoura perused her studies in Performance art and Sound-design at Stockholm University of the Arts and the Abjeez are now back again with their newly released third album "Paa Sho" (Stand Up) that was partly recorded in Costa Rica and Stockholm 2016. Currently the sisters based in Stockholm and New York are recording new music videos and preparing for their upcoming U.S.A. Tour that will take place in November & December 2017.
