Musicians in Iran World music


A journey through through a country which has become the focus on international attention: Iran, a place where music is also a political issue.

In the first part, Leonidas Antonopoulos visits Tehran, a big city where reality plays hide-and-seek with prohibitions and where the voice of youth is expressed through rap, rock and even heavy metal, along with the great voices of classical Iranian music. There, he meets singer Sahram Nazeri, a man who renewed classical Iranian music, and also the all-women group Rozaneh. He meets the first generation of Iranian rappers recording their songs clandestinely, the first death metal group of the country, Seven Deadly Sins, who are obliged to give concerts in front of a seated-only audience and are not permitted to sing their lyrics in public. He also interviews the first mixed pop group, the successful Arian.
