Karmandan, in Farsi, translates to blue-collar office workers. The songs are written and produced by Erwin Khachikian, an Iran/Armenian raised in America. Performed in Farsi, English, and Armenian, Karmandan’s song subject-matter reflects modern life issues and concerns; from the pressures of plastic surgery for a media-accepted look, to making an attempt to understand others’ differences to respect one another for a better place for all to live.
The band has performed and appeared on nationally acclaimed networks such as BBC numerous times, and they have performed sold out shows and festivals both in and outside of the USA. Since the official release of their debut album, their unique stage look and videos have grabbed the attention of many.
