Googoosh گوگوش Collection
Faegheh Atashin also known by her stage name “Googoosh”, is an Iranian singer and actress of Iranian Azerbaijani origin. She is known for her contributions to Iranian pop music, but also starred in a variety of movies from the 1950s to the 1970s.
Following the Iranian Revolution in 1979, she is famously known for remaining in Tehran until 2000 and not performing again due to the ban on female singers.
Still, her following grew. Younger people have rediscovered her music via bootleg recordings. Outside of Iran and Azerbaijan, she has a significant following in many other Middle Eastern as well as Central Asian countries (including Tajikistan), and has even caught the attention of African media and press.
