"Light in Babylon" and "The Women of Teheran"

The trio of an Israeli singer of Iranian origin and a Turkish santoor player accompanied  by a French guitarist create a fusion that  incorporates music from different regions as well (Turkish, French and more). They are based in Turkey, Istanbul and perform in Turkey and in Europe.

Here is their take on the force to wear Hijab

Lyrics translation:
The women of Teheran

the women of Tehran
they don’t cover their face
they don’t cover their smile
giving the glory from their inside

and in such a familiar accent
that brings in me the thing I already forgot
and if you listen how they sing
and if you hear how- they- sing

my mother might be one of them
she use to tell me stories
and in a almost sad face
you can see a smile sometimes.

and in such a familiar accent
that brings in me the thing I already forgot
and if you listen how they sing
and if you hear how- they- sing

If one day I will rise up there
I foreign bird in the sky of Iran
I will stretch my throat
I will open my wings
To sing for you in Teheran
