عجب زیبا و عجبا شیرین حنجره یی

Red Wine

عجب زیبا و عجبا شیرین حنجره یی ! خوش به حال همچین هنرمندی !

اینها که ایراد گیرند،خود هم بی‌ هنرند و هم ایرانی نیستند ! ایرانی اول خاک را بیند و سپس پرچم ! ما را نه شاید که به خاطر دین و مذهب کسی‌ گشاده گویی کنیم و حرمت شکنی کنیم !

حمل بر جسارت نیست،بروید معلومات خود را بالا برید و انقدر عزا با خاک کاهو نگیرید.



Rita's song

by Noga on

Is a beautiful Hebrew poem written by the poetess Rachel, who lived at the turn of the twentieth century in a kibbutz on the shore of the sea of Galilee.  And the poem which was put to music is titled: "A Melancholy Tune"

Here is a very spontaneous translation:

Can you hear my voice, my distant

Can you hear my voice wherever
you are?

A voice that cries out bravely,
but weeps bitterly

And transcends time expecting a


The world is immense, riven
with many roads

That cross for a moment and
drift away forever

A man is seeking but his knees
are buckling under him

Cannot find what he has lost


My final day is well-nigh maybe

The day approaches for tears of

I will wait for you until my
days are over

as Rachel waited for her beloved Jacob.

She says thank you mum and dad for leaving Iran and coming to Israel, or I now had to put up with Rahbar. I would rather jump from these cliffs.

No doubt, some people who don't understand Persian language might find it ugly, too. If someone ever tells me that my language is ugly, I would wish him opportunities to overcome his ignorance and to learn new languages.

I think Rita's voice is very nice and It makes me proud that such a talented and popular artist comes from Iran.

الان ديگه يه مشت عربو امتی کربلايی دارن ايراد از زبون عبری دختره ميگيرن که اره  "تلخه" هی هي...زپلشک.. يکی نيس به اين ابن قادسی ها بگه انگاری زبون کربلايی حسين عخ تفن جقٌن خفيي عتن ملخنشون :) رو که خودشون و ملاٌشون با لهجه ,الکی نامش فارسی , به خورد يه مشت اصغر جواد ميدن از اين بهتره.

As much as I disagree with AIPAC/Israeli criminal policies, I respect Jewish Iranians. I have nothing but good memories from Jewish community in Esfahan which I worked for, went to school with, and dined at their homes.... when I was young.

by choghok on

Saw a picture of her being presented to Berlusconi recently and she gave him a nice friendly hug. Knowing Berlusconi from recent news (prostitution scandals) you would know why Israelis put her up to the task.

But I wish I knew what she's saying... any translators in the house?

I have to agree with Bomannyali on Haifa Wehbe.  My GOD, have you seen that woman?


I don't think that beautiful is a strong enough word to describe her!


Very nice!

by bomannyali on

Elissa, Nansy Ajram and Haifa wehbi are lebanese singers that iranians in iran would rather listen to than almost all iranian female singers in exile.

Also there video clips are high quality productions.

take my word for it, i know.
