HIT SEMANAL: Kourosh Yaghmaei "Shirin Nakon"

“Kourosh Yaghmaei (Persian: کوروش یغمایی , born December 3, 1946 ), is an Iranian guitarist, singer, and early pioneer of rock music in Iran. He is best known internationally for his unique presentation of early Iranian rock throughout the 1970s.
He taught himself how to play guitar by listening to records of bands such as The Ventures. In the early 1960s, Kourosh joined a group called The Raptures, who would play covers of The Ventures, The Kinks, The Beatles, and The Monkees, all of whom Kourosh revered.
The ideas for his music consisted of combining Iranian melodies, instrumentals, vocals, and tones with Western harmonies, scales, and modes. Kourosh and his brothers worked hard using these ideas, which brought them great success throughout the decade until the Iranian Revolution in 1979, which by then left Kourosh and his band without legal permission to perform his music. This ban on Kourosh's performances would affect his career and bar him from playing his usual music for a combined period of nearly three decades.
International attention was brought to him with the 2011 release of his album Back to the Brink, a compilation of music from his solo career ranging from 1973 to 1979.” _ Wikipedia
