New member
I decided to start a post to track down some of the old school singers.
Malik Mirza? Where's he at
Gilyana Esho? I know he's in australia, can anyone of you guys give us an update on him
Sargon Rasho?
Ra'ad Zaya
George Chaharbakhshi


giliana esho lives in melbourne, he hasnt recorded anything lately he just does a few parties and weddings in melbourne.

raad zaia well what can i say, last i heard is that he took off to the states after his marriage break up, but this was years ago, no one has heard of him since. i think his retired from singing

as for sargon rasho and george charbakhchi these guys are old now, although george released an album recently but these guys were in their prime in the 80s

long live the 80s

As "Nore" mentioned, he plays the violin now. He performed in a fundraiser for the Assyrian Church back in Iraq a few months ago, it was good.

Emmanuel bet younan
He's still singing, he takes his time with his music though, he doesn't sing anything. In the last party I've seen him in mid last year, he did say that he was working on his new album but that it takes time to find something good, and he had a certain style which he wants to ensure it continues in the new album.

mikhael nano doesnt sing either, he is battling a major illness

raymond samuel was around in the late 70s early 80s, wicked cassette!

New member
My dad got in contact with George Chaharbakhshi recently and apparently he does real estate now in Chicago.


New member
Raad Zaia still sings, but not as much (or at least he isn't sought for much). He lives in Sydney. He lives close to my suburb.

Any news on Jermain Tamraz? It's like she's vanished into thin air. No Facebook page, no concerts, no nothing. Can she please make an update on her life? We're fans and we want to know what's her situation like.
