MARYAM RAJAVI: CONDOLENCES TO MY FELLOW COMPATRIOTS, IRAN’S ARTS COMMUNITY, AND THE FAMILY OF SHAJARIAN, ONE OF IRAN’S GREATEST MUSICIANS

Mohammad Reza Shajarian, one of the most renowned masters of traditional Persian music and songs, passed away after a long bout with illness.
My condolences to the Iranian people, to Iran’s arts community, and to Mr. Shajarian’s family and friends on the passing of one of Iran’s greatest artists. Shajarian’s brilliant work and record are everlasting and among the most precious treasures of our national art.

Since the early 1970s, Shajarian was among the artists who invented new methods in music and used his inherent creativity and talents to transform Iran’s authentic music and vocal sounds through his performances, while preserving its core principles and foundations.

The mullahs who oppose all forms of art and cannot tolerate any other voices reacted vindictively against Shajarian by prohibiting him from performing concerts. They also removed his famous Ramadan prayers from state-run radio and television.
