Since the Revolution of 1979, restrictions have been placed on women singing in Iran. These first prohibited all singing but developed into a ban on women singing solo in front of men who are unrelated to them. Listen to an hour-long tribute mix curated by Berlin-based fan Moji Taali of Iranian women singers and musicians.
This is my first collection of voices of Iranian women. It contains music produced by Iranian female singers and musicians, whose voices have been suppressed in recent years. They are forbidden from singing alone and can only sing along with men.
This is my contribution to reversing this cycle. These songs only have female singers and men -at most- just play along.
I hope you enjoy these beautiful voices and peaceful sounds as much as I do. And if you do, please share it with other friends! Moji Taali
