Mahasti 1946-2007

Iranian pop star Mahasti, the younger sister of another profilic singer Hayedeh passed away yesterday after battling cancer for four years. She was a very acclaimed and loved Iranian singer. Both sisters were monarchists and staunch opponents of the Islamic Republic occupying Iran - they suffered greatly living away from their motherland and their songs centered around the pain of living in exile.

May she rest in peace.

In the below video you can see another staunch Iranian nationalist, Fereydoun Farokhzad, alongside Mahasti:
