Song of the Day # 2,187 Kourosh Yaghmaei

Iranian Pop Star who was massive before the 1979 Cultural revolution, then found his music suppressed and performances curtailed thereafter. This, his breakthrough debut single from 1973 is enough in itself to prove his merit. It sold five million copies on the domestic market and has a haunting, spectacular quality. Yaghmaei is still alive and the internal Iranian embargo on his music has loosened somewhat since 1994.
