    To understand where our music stand in world stage you only have to look at how many international musicians we have and compare it with other nations. Kalhor is one of very very few who gave some credibility to out instrumental music around the world and it kind of stops there which is quite sad. Others either in pop or traditional despite some nice work only limited themselves inside Iran and local audiences.

    Since singing for a small Iranian community makes very little sense financially you will find nobody. Those guys in Iran make coin.

    Despite all the restrictions in Iran the lads
    have done very well in the last few yrs.
    Why don’t L.A. singers try to compete with
    Iranian singers and up their games?
    The money is in Europe and North America
    That’s why the likes of Yeganeh come abroad
    Most concerted get cancelled in Iran by
    Idiotic basijis.

    I was talking about musicians, Arash and like Arash are more like entertainer. I have nothing against them though.

    I think we're mixing up pop music with classical/traditional music.

    Most musicians who work on classical/traditional music and are actually educated in it barely make any money.
    If anything Iran is an exception where someone like Shajarian or Nazeri can make quite a bit of money for music that doesn't really have a "pop" sound.

    That is not true actually, a lot of countries's folk music musicians or singers make decent money. The issue in 2017 not many singers and for sure Iranians making much money from albums, or even single tracks, it is a way to encourage people to attend their concerts, but then again in traditional music, unless you are Shajarian, Nazeri, Kalhor, Alizadeh usually the average attendances are between 200 to 500 max per concert.

    I can talk about traditional music only, but a lot of musicians are making Ok money in Iran by only teaching, because more and more kids play instruments, i actually know few people who decided to quite their full time job to teach music, saying they are making more money.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mix Arash with our other singers. He got his contract with Warner Music Sweden, brought up for foreign listeners/audiences as well as Iranians. I wouldn't call him a true "Iranian singer" even though he sings in Persian. His songs are more khareji style.

    But I agree with you on some other singers. You see lots of youtube comments from foreigners who praise their songs.

    99% of it is purely an attempt by different individuals and in many cases robots to get "likes". You will see the same thing on videos from other countries and even stupid meaningless videos.

This prompted outrage and many ppl in Toronto who had bought their tix already, boycotted their concert and the venue was half-empty! They learned their lesson for sure!

    As for Mohsen Yeganeh, according to this news, the boycott was bc of the insulting word he had used in one of his songs:
    در ترانه محسن یگانه کلمه «کرکس» به عنوان استعاره***ای از یهودی به*** کار رفته است. همچنین این ترانه به ستاره داوود که از دو مثلث تشکیل شده اشاره کرده است و آن را به عنوان نماد ترس و زندان به کار برده است.

    If this is true, Jewish community had all the right to protest. This is antisemitic and insulting. No matter which religion it is.

    Sure, they have the right to protest, so do the poor kids of Syria and Palestine... those people coming out and "protesting" for what he said , do they also come out when Israel kill innocent civilians in west bank?

    There is no question the Israeli regime is riding on the wave of ultra ortodox religious jew, same as in Iran. But I'm sure the majority of people live in Israel want peace.
    The question is did Yeganeh need to insult those people? was he forced to write the song? I'm against any religion but i'm not gonna write a song about it.
