I listened to Googoosh for the first time this week thanks to a what.cd freeleech "event". Really really good stuff. It was her self titled compilation if anyone was looking for a suggested album.

I first her after hearing Atiq Rahimi the Afghan film-maker talk about her on France-Inter radio. He had been exiled for some time and he heard her on French radio. He said he walked straight to the airport and got a plane and back to his own 'cradle' Afghanistan
As thousands of Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans, Somalis and Eritreans make their way to Europe, I hope the agony of the exile will be remembered and that few permanently leave their 'cradle' unless it is absolutely necessary.
Googoosh can arouse such fierce passion. My favourite song of hers is Shabe Shishei - the combination of syncopated waltz time and subtle modulations makes my eyes fill with tears and my heart with the most tender of emotions.
