Music and Revolution in Iran

/"Nahid Siamdoust's beautiful writing paints a vivid portrait of the struggles over popular music in the Islamic Republic and brings to life some of the most unique and colorful characters in Iranian society today. An instant classic that will launch conversations on Iran and contemporary popular music globally."/
—Mark LeVine, author of /Heavy Metal Islam/

Soundtrack of the Revolution cover <>

/*Soundtrack of the Revolution <>*/ offers a striking account of Iranian culture, politics, and social change to provide an alternative history of the Islamic Republic. Drawing on over five years of research in Iran, including during the 2009 protests, Nahid Siamdoust closely follows the work of four musicians, each with markedly different political views and relations with the Iranian government. She sheds light on issues at the heart of debates in Iran—about its future and identity, changing notions of religious belief, and the quest for political freedom.
