Googoosh

This song is from a cd called Pomegranates: Persian Pop and Funk of the 60s and 70s. It’s a slow burning, groovy number with a lovely, ominous keyboard riff and a sultry vocal from Googoosh. I’m no expert on this type of thing but it really is wonderful.

Googoosh is the stage name of Faegheh Atashin, a widely known Iranian superstar (still active today with her own Googoosh Music Academy reality TV show). She was banned from performing after 1979 following the Iranian revolution, her flamboyant style hidden away by the Ayatollahs. She returned in 2000 and has been regaining Middle Eastern superstar status ever since.
