Not long ago Assyrian singers of Iranian origion dominated the music scene. In the 80's & 90's, four of our most famous singers where from Iran. The music scene was dominated by none other than Jermaine Temraz, George Charbakchi, Shamiran and offcourse Evin Aghassi.
Since then no one has come out of Iran. Is is it becuase of the revolution or is it beacuase of the exedous of Assyrians from Iran. Obviously Evin is still going strong but the other three have literally vanished.
I think they (Assyrian singers from Iran) brought a different sound than the ones from Iraq. This might be one of the reasons why our music has suffered and has not modernized.
It would be nice to have a dedicated thread about the four greatest singers from Iran.
