Shirin Nakon
by Kourosh Yaghmaei
(1 play) | (0 fans)

"Yaghmaei, the grandfather of progressive rock and psychedelic music in Iran, began life as a classical musician. He was ten years old when his father gave him a santour (Persian dulcimer) and he dutifully studied traditional Iranian music for five years before getting his hands on his first guitar aged 15.

Unlike most of Iran’s pre-revolutionary superstars, Koroush elected to stay in Iran after the revolution and suffered under the vow of silence imposed by the Islamic regime. He whiled away the time publishing children’s stories and although he was eventually able to begin performing again, a long 17 years after the revolution, it was a further seven years before he was permitted to publish an album with a photograph of himself on the cover."

"2nd single from Liraz - Israeli singer, songwriter and actress of Persian origins. Family of Liraz Charhi emigrated to Israel during the 70’s at the brink of the Iranian Revolution, and the inspiration from Persian culture and traditional Iranian music can still be heard in her modern renditions. Liraz has chosen her distant homeland and its culture as one of the most important topics of her artistic path. The role of women in the society and culture, perception of female artists and singers in Iran are the key issues for Liraz."
