Sussan Deyhim is one of Iran's most potent voices in exile for the simple reason that she possesses a marvelously potent voice. She wails and coos and ululates, the sound of the soul in translation. When she sings low and gravelly, she transforms herself into an earthy, erotic chanteuse. When high, she flies free with the birds. Her country, where she cannot return, now discourages music. Maybe the time has come for her bigger musical guns.
"Sussan Deyhim is a fascinating original voice in music and the arts. Her rich and complex vocals are warm, beautifully sung, and always surprising."
- Bobby McFerrin
