Drunk with Rana's Voice

Rumi's poems with Jazz and Blues?! Hard to believe. It's like singing Shakespeare's poems with Rock.

Yet, so possible.

When Rana Farhan sings it, anything is possible.

This lady has got such a magical voice- her voice is so strong, so soulful. If you still haven't listened to her, you should definitely do.

If you have watched the movie "No One Knows about Persian Cats" you know very well the part where a song by a woman is being sung and different scenes of Tehran are being shown. It's hard to get that song out of your head. I started asking my friends if they knew who the singer was and what the song was, but nobody knew.

Can't remember how finally I found out, but when I found the songs, I listened to them 200 times, with my headphones in my ears even when I was in bed sleeping!

Here's that beautiful song, It's called "Drunk with Love" (All rights belong to PMC channel).

Listen and enjoy:

azizam: dear

khanoomi: missy
janam?: Yes? (used when someone calls your name and you want to answer)
jan: dear (used at the end of names like "Sonya jan" which means dear Sonya)
jigar: (very informal) sweetie
jigar-tala: (very informal) sweetie (tala means gold, funnily enough jigar means liver!)
khoshgel khanoom: pretty girl (please use it just for females you know, if it's said to strangers it has a bad meaning)

Queen Fawzia

Today I'd like to write about someone who wasn't Iranian but for sure had a role in Iran's history: Queen Fawzia.

If you ask me to name the most beautiful women in the world, one of them is certainly Fawzia Fauad.


Daughter of Malek Fauad, the Egyptian king, she was born in 4 November 1921 in Cairo, Egypt. Malek Faud's family were originally from Albania, and you can see that in their blue eyes and light hair.



Reza Shah, Iran's King at that time decided to choose a wife for his son Muhammad-Reza among Eastern princesses. From all those girls, Muhammad-Reza chose Fawzia.



Soon a Royal group from Iran with Muhammad-Reza Pahlavi left Iran to Egypt, for the courting ceremony and planning  the wedding. The young couple met there and a splendid feast was held.



After a few days Muhammad-Reza, Fawzia and a Egyptian royalty group including Fawzia's Mother and sisters arrived in Iran for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony was very magnificent according to the Life magazin…

Arash, Melody, and Two Little Ds

This is Arash, the Iranian singer in Sweden. He has got a famous song called Melody (but in my opinion not better than his song Dasa Bala, feat Aylar, et al). There is a blond baby at the end of the song in Arash' arms. Many people said Melody, the little girl at the end of the video is Arash' daughter.

My question at that time was if she's his daughter, why so blond? Had Arash married a Swedish girl? Then by little searches I understood, firstly Arash married just some months before the video and it's not possible to have a kid so soon (unless the bride was expecting a baby before the wedding which I'm sure wasn't the case!); secondly Arash married an Iranian girl and it's not possible for an Iranian couple to have such a white blond baby (if they had, ask some genealogists what had happened), thirdly Melody is his colleague's daughter, a Swedish man.


A few moments ago Arash updated on his facebook page he became a father, has twins called Donya and D…
