I agree with Nicole
Radmand's comment about Shahyar Ghanbari. Unfortunately we always forget
the people behind a successful singer. In Googoosh's case, nobody denies
her talent, her voice, her appearance and the emotion and feelings she
puts in her songs.
It is interesting to know that Ghanbari started his career as a song
writer at 18 years of age and he wrote"Deegeh ashkam vasseh man naaz
meekoneh" for Googoosh. Before that, she used to sing other singer's
songs. Ghanbari wrote about 25 songs for Googoosh. Coincidentally, "Hejrat"
was the last song that Ghanbari wrote for her. (We should also name other
song writers Ardalaan Sarfaraz, Homa Meerafshar, Zoya Zakarian, Jannati
Ataee, as well as composers Farid Zoland, Varoujan, and Shamaee Zadeh.)
Ghanbari is aware that some are singing his songs in Iran. Attached
article about it, which was published in Javanan International weekly
magazine in Los Angeles. Javanan is a good source of information about
Iranian actors, artists and singers.
