A cultural union piece that sheds new light with uplifting vibes.
Alborz Mohtashami is a Canadian, born to Iranian immigrant parents. He has existed in the middle ground between an Eastern upbringing and the Western world he was living in. As a result, songwriting became his outlet amidst some of his trouble in life. It was especially crucial in the aftermath of 9/11 when the media and fellow citizens vilified his ethnicity. Now, Mohtashami, also known as Death By Tapioca, is focused on having fun, practicing self-care, and spreading joy. Likewise, he spreads his music through Spotify, Instagram, and Facebook. Death By Tapioca’s latest release dropped on February 18th as a single, titled “Airtime.”
