Anonymous Sinners

No More Hijab - a Persian version of hip hopping rap, this is an example of underground anti regime rebelliousness of kids in Iran. Check out the footage around the 50 seconds mark, where the Lady Fashion Posse Police gets her Vice Preventing assets handed to her by a bad hijabed ho who owns her own ride.

The artists who created this have several nom de guerres - like "Anonymous Sinners"

Actually quite good. Homey production values, cool tones, a hook with a doable beat tends to create a sense of solidarity with girls in the Mullah's time travelling republic.

Thanks to FoRaM sHaH for turning me on to this

I'm sure they must remain unknown to the authorities, their lives probably depend on it.

It is interesting how the young folks, via music, art, etc. can express themselves in spite of dictators and rigid religious rules.

The music is haunting but not creepy. Lots of sad undertones. To be expected, I'd say.

Hi Debbie - that's the thing about art - it's in you and it has to come out. Very clever stunning social commentary despite despots doing their worst - young artists do their best.

Hi Karen, yeah it was different - more ME ish sounding - am reliably informed that many of the KB sounds are from ancient synths of the 1990 era - think of what they could accomplish with modern gear, tones and production.
