Monir Vakili's inspiring and
April 7, 2004
I am known to my family and friends for my love of
music. That is why I usually receive CD's for various occasions.
This year too was no exception! The CD I received for Norouz was
by Monir Vakili. Listen >>> Sample
Listening to Monir's voice took me back forty four
years to the fall of 1960 when I first met her. At the
I was accompanying my husband on a trip to the U.S., while he was
attending the Advance Management Program at Harvard.
At that time,
Monir was studying voice at the New England Conservatory of Music.
There, I not only come to know Monir personally, but I also got
to know her dear husband, Mr. Majid Majidi, and their beautiful
little daughter, Zaza.
Who would have thought after all these years,
with so much happening in all of our lives, that one day Monir's
and talented daughter Zaza, with her darling children, Alexandra
and Arian, would bring their beloved mother/grandmother to
life, as they have by producing this warm and touching CD.
Although we lost Monir to a most tragic car accident,
her ever-present spirit continues to live on, inspiring and
elevating us through
her beautiful artistry.
I cherish this CD as a precious Norouz present,
for it gives me the opportunity to relive the fond memories of
days when we used to attend Monir's unforgettable performances
I wish to express my most sincere congratulations
to darling Zaza and her loving family, for giving me this memorable
gift -- one
which speaks not only to those of my generation, but also to the
young generation of today, where we can all enjoy Monir's
warm and heavenly voice together. Listen >>> Sample
