MARZIEH,Ashraf Sadat Mortezai
d.21 mehr 1389/oct 13,2010,Paris,France
After Emad Ram,Marzieh is gone too.After Delkash,Pouran,Elaheh,Mohamad nouri,a generation of Iranians,in exile or at home ,lost another voice.she's gone and left a thousand songs behind with great nostalgia.I always whispered her song:
BEH ZAMANI KEH MOHABBAT SHODEH AFSANEH/in a time that love becomes legend
This was a popular song that we performed with our school orchestra,in Hadaf High School of Tehran,in 1336/1957, with our singer Farhad Savad kuhi.
This performance was done in front of a big audience,who included Dr.Mehran,the minister of education.
Afterward we recieved an honorable prize from Dr.Ahmad Birashk,the Hadaf Chancellor.This song is with me even when the singer is now silent
Marzieh ,who was banned from singing for 15 years,once said:
"WHAT WOULD A NIGHTINGALE DO IF YOU PUT HER IN A CAGE?
SHE WOULD DIE IN TWENTY FOUR HOURS."
Marzieh like our other pop or classical singers was a lover:
"I SING MOSTLY LOVE SONGS...LOVE IS INCARCERATED AND KILLED IN IRAN."
