Ashk-haa va Labkhand-haa
(Sound of Music)
Music and lyrics prepared by Pedram
March 18, 1999
The Iranian film industry, especially before the revolution, was well-known
for its exceptional ability to dub foreign films. One of the very best
examples of this was "The Sound of Music".
The Persian version of the film -- named "Ashk-haa va Lankhand-haa"
(Tears and Laughter) -- was simply amazing because all the songs were translated
and beautifully sung in Persian. As a result, the film was not only a huge
success, but also the tunes remained forever recorded in the minds of an
entire generation of Iranian children. Remember "do, do shab nakhaabeedam..."?
The songs were apparently performed by the Rudaki Hall Chorus. But we
do not know the name of the lead female vocalist or the others. Do you
know who she is? Do you know who wrote the lyrics? If you have any information
please let us know.
The dubbed (Persian) version of this wonderful musical is available
from: Pars Video in Ontario, Canada (Tel: 416-512-2414). Also visit Pedram
Missaghi's Iran Media
site to see a video clip from the musical.
