Music of My Saturday...

Ariana Delwari is both here and now, and faraway and long ago.  She is an Afghani American living in Los Angeles and her music speaks to both traditions, that of her homeland and her hometown.  Her voice is ethereally ethnic, but also brightly Joni Mitchell-esque.  The above video is so poignantly definitive of who she is, at once old Hollywood glam and tribal Afghani beauty.  She's just so fucking cool.
