The album's producer is Greg Saunier from Deerhoof, who took on the band after Bavafa sent him some demos, including "Hejrat", their reinterpretation of a song by the controversial Iranian pop singer Googoosh. The "Hejrat" 7" landed Sholi in the 2008 Music Issue of The Believer.
With influences ranging from jazz and prog rock to qawwali, Sholi's self-titled debut album is a uniquely free-flowing study in contrasts. All three of the band's members - Payam Bavafa, bassist Eric Ruud, and especially drummer Jonathon Bafus - are fluent players and often play intricate parts, but they never feel showy; likewise, Bavafa's tenor is a perfect foil for the instrumentation, with a coolness that mirrors the band's prowess and emotionality that complements it.
