Googoosh ﮔﻮﮔﻮش

Faegheh Atashin, nicknamed Googoosh, was born in Tehran 5th May 1950 (15th Ordibehesht 1329) , to parents Nasrin and Saber Atashin, Saber being an Iranian Azeri and Nasrin being an Azerbaijani immigrant from the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic. Googoosh’s life was to take a defining path when her parents divorced in 1952 and her father was awarded full custody of the two-year-old child: Saber, who was an entertainer and a comedian, encouraged Googoosh to sing in bars and cafés in Laleh-Zar Street in Tehran when she was only 3 years old ( Other sources report instead of 5 years)

The story goes this way: One night Saber, who was supposed to start his program, complained of heartburn and was rushed to the hospital. The owner of the Crystal Cafe, who had seen little Googoosh singing, woke her up and asked her to sing for the audience. They brought a chair and made her stand on it to reach the mike, and she started singing popular songs of Delkash and Pooran. The chemistry she left on the ordinary Googoosh child star on people was magical in a way that the owner of the café retired her father and hired her for 500 Rials a night. Interestingly enough, her father's wage was only 200 Rials, and the three-year-old Googoosh became the actual bread-winner of the family. Although in her private life she experienced hardship and bitterness, growing up with a mean step-mother, her fame grew day by day, and people from all over the country came to Crystal Café to see this new artistic phenomenon. Her singing at such an early age prevented her from getting on with her education, and she left the school after completing primary school.

In 1960, when she was only 10 years old, she had a successful role in the movie The Runaway Angel (1961), a film by George Obadiah. Her first experience with cinema, however, was a movie by the title of Hope and Fear (1960) in 1958. Googoosh was discovered by Iranian composers for her natural singing talent, where she created a unique style in modern Iranian music . By her teenage years, she was regularly singing in public, putting her own stamp on the songs of established musicians such as Ghazal, Delkash, Elaheh and others. In 1966 she released “Ghesseyeh Vafa” the first of many compositions written specifically for her, on this occasion by the composer Parviz Maghsadi and lyricist Iraj Janati Attai. . She recorded more than 200 songs in Farsi, which were embraced by various generations. She also made numerous trips to Europe and recorded songs in Italian, Spanish, English and French with Barclay Records and RCA Italiana. Her French numbers and Italian Album reached the top of the charts in 1970 and brought her international fame. She received the first prize at the Midem festival in Cannes and took part in San Remo Festival in 1973. She was also embraced in her trips to Arab and North African countries Googoosh in a movie and got the honorary medal of arts from Tunisia.

During the 1970s, Googoosh began a meteoric rise to fame and success as she drove the edge of Iranian pop music further and further. Known for her flamboyant outfits and fashion sense, Googoosh wowed her pop culture hungry fans in Iran and abroad with her trademark hairdos and hip-elegant style. Iranian women changed hairdos with Googoosh and she was always one step ahead of them with a new look. Her music ranged from upbeat 1960s and 1970s pop, given an Arabic-tinged edge, to declamatory, emotional ballads dealing with love and loss, which at times edged towards chanson and Édith Piaf territory. She starred in over 25 movies, one of which was to be the most commercially successful Iranian motion picture of all time. Googoosh performed many times for the royal family and was a favorite of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's wife and children. She performed at the party given for the 1977 birthday of Reza Pahlavi, Crown Prince of Iran.

Googoosh is said to have been a victim of underworld organizations who controlled cabarets and bars in Tehran. One of the underworld bosses, Parviz Ghorbani, the owner of "Shokoufeh Nou" cabaret was the brain behind conspiracy against Googoosh where he made created enormous debt in her name. In 1973, she married Ghorbani against her will to pay her debts. She has a son, Kambiz, from her first marriage

Googoosh starred in many popular movies, among which were Bita (1972), Honeymoon (1976)  , Fellow Traveler (1975), Mamal Amricayi (1975) and Along the Night (1978) are the most popular. She also starred in 3 Crazies (1968) with Garshasb Raoufi and Mohammad Motevaselani. Her acting career ended with the 1979 revolution in Iran. She acted with Behrouz Vossoughi, the most popular actor of his time, in several movies and later joined Saeed Kangarani in the erotic movie Along the Night (1978), which was well-received by Iranians, as well as other Middle Eastern countries. Critics, however, never considered Googoosh a successful actress. In 1976, she married Behrouz Vossoughi, but their marriage only lasted for one year. During the late 1970s, Googoosh became involved with Homayoun Mestaghi. She married him in 1979. Several years later in 1985, Googoosh divorced Mestaghi. She married the director in 1991 Masud Kimiai and choose to resides in an apartment in the north of Tehran.

Following the Iranian Revolution of 1979, she is known to have remained in Tehran .She was imprisoned for almost a month in the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1980 and had to interrupt her career due to the prohibition of performing as a female. After the revolution, Googoosh, like other artists, was forbidden from performing and her material was banned.

For many years Googoosh rejected lucrative offers for recording new albums outside the country. Still, her following grew. Younger Iranian people have rediscovered her music via bootleg recordings . 

 She would not perform again until Mohammad Khatami's presidency, during which she was allowed to tour outside of the country. In the time she was unable to perform, she kept herself occupied at home by taking care of her house and reading. As she had no intention of leaving Iran, she adapted to her new life.

President Mohammad Khatami allowed her to leave Iran in 2000 to hold the concerts of what will be her first North American tour. Also in 2000 was published a documentary titled “Googoosh : Iran's Daughter”, which tells the singer's life and her status as an icon, describing in detail the socio-political turbulence that led to the 1979 revolution in Iran. Made by the Iranian-American director Farhad Zamani, the documentary started production in 1998 and was made at a time when in Googoosh it was still forbidden to give interviews.

Her return to the scene, however unexpected, marked the beginning of a new career. Googoosh has decided not to return home, she currently lives between Toronto and Los Angeles, she has begun to record songs and has made several new albums. In addition to holding concerts all over the world she fights in defense of those in Iran who are persecuted by the regime because of their ideas, their faith and their sexual orientation.

Faegheh Atashin , meglio conosciuta con il nome d' arte di Googoosh , è una cantante e attrice iraniana nata a Teheran il 5 maggio 1950 (alcune fonti indicano il 7 Maggio 1949) da un padre Azero e una madre originaria della Repubblica dell'Azerbaijan. Cresciuta in una casa sita in Laleh-Zar Street a Teheran, ha vissuto la sua infanzia in modo travagliato. la vita di Googoosh cambiò radicalmente quando i suoi genitori divorziarono nel 1952 e suo padre ricevette la piena custodia della figlia di soli due anni.

Il padre , Saber Atashin , si guadagnava da vivere come intrattenitore e comico nei locali della capitale. Quella che diverrà la cantante iraniana più conosciuta al mondo iniziò a cantare giovanissima imitando le star ascoltate alla radio . Accortosi del talento della figlioletta, Saber la spronò ad esibirsi e la fece debuttare al Crystal Cafe di Teheran quando aveva circa cinque anni ( alcune fonti riferiscono tre). Il pubblico apprezzò la sua esibizione e Googoosh iniziò quindi la sua carriera nel mondo dell’arte. La sua fama crebbe di giorno in giorno, e persone provenienti da tutto il paese si recavano al Crystal Café per vedere questo nuovo fenomeno artistico. Nel 1957, quando aveva solo 7 anni, Googoosh iniziò la sua carriera da attrice partecipando ai film Bim va omid (Hope and Fear), uscito nel 1960, e Fereshteh farari (The Runaway Angel), entrambi diretti dal regista George Obadiah .Oberata dagli  impegni e praticamente costretta ad una vita da adulta Googoosh abbandonò gli studi alla fine della scuola elementare .

Ben presto i compositori iraniani si accorsero del talento della ragazzina e scrissero per lei vari singoli che contribuirono alla sua affermazione come icona indiscussa della musica leggera iraniana. Nel corso della sua adolescenza Googoosh cantava regolarmente in pubblico, interpretando i brani di cantanti affermarte come Ghazal, Delkash (le due cantanti iraniane più in voga all’epoca) , Elaheh e altre. Nel 1966 pubblicò "Ghesseyeh Vafa" la prima di molte composizioni scritte appositamente per lei, in questa occasione dal compositore Parviz Maghsadi e dal paroliere Iraj Janati Attai. Oltre che a ridefinire con le sue canzoni il concetto di musica pop , Googoosh contribuì decisamente ad indirizzare la moda e le abitudini dei giovani iraniani ( sopratutto iraniane) nel corso di tutti gli anni ‘60, giovani affamati di cultura disimpegnata che hanno visto in lei un modello da seguire

Conosciuta per i suoi abiti stravaganti e per il suo stile elegante , Googoosh proponeva canzoni che spaziavano dal classico pop anni ‘60 e '70  alle armonie arabeggianti, non disdegnando ballate emotive a tematica amorosa e incursioni nella canzone francese. La sua popolarità ha oltrepassato i confini patrii e le sue opere si sono diffuse in tutto il mondo. A soli diciannove anni poteva affermare  di essere una vera e propria stella della canzone iraniana

 Si è esibita numerose volte sia in Europa che nei paesi arabi ricevendo sempre ottimi riscontri . Ha registrato canzoni in italiano, spagnolo, inglese e francese e ha partecipato nel 1973 al Festival della canzone italiana a San Remo. Di pari passo con la sua carriera di cantante si è mossa la sua attività cinematografica . Ha preso parte a oltre 40 Film recitando con i più conosciuti attori iraniani della sua epoca anche se la critica non è sempre stata benevola con lei non considerandola una vera attrice.

Si dice che nel pieno della sua carriera Googoosh sia stata vittima delle organizzazioni malavitose che controllavano  cabaret e bar a Teheran. Un esponente di queste organizzazioni , Parviz Ghorbani, proprietario del cabaret "Shokoufeh Nou" , ha contratto a nome dell’artista un enorme debito,  utilizzato in seguito come arma di ricatto per unirsi in matrimonio a lei . Contro la sua volontà Googoosh è stata costretta a sposare Ghorbani nel 1973 e da lui ha avuto un figlio che ha chiamato Kambiz. Nel corso della sua vita ha contratto altri matrimoni ; nel 1976 si è sposata con l’attore Behrouz Vossoughi ( matrimonio che è durato solo un anno) , nel 1979 è convolata a nozze con
Homayoun Mestaghi  e nel 1991 sposò  il regista Masud Kimiai. L'avvento della rivoluzione iraniana nel 1979  fece terminare bruscamente sia la sua carriera di cantante che la sua carriera di attrice. Nonostante la sua musica sia stata bandita e le sia stato impedito di esibirsi , il suo mito ha continuato a crescere sia in patria che nei paesi limitrofi. Nel 1980 è stata addirittura imprigionata per quasi un mese a causa della sua precedente carriera.

Nonostante le siano state fatte offerte molto remunerative Googoosh si è sempre rifiutata di incidere album al di fuori del suo paese . Questo fino all’anno 2000 quando il presidente Mohammad Khatami le ha concesso di lasciare l’Iran per tenere i concerti di quello che sarà il suo primo tour Nord Americano. Sempre nel 2000 è stato pubblicato un documentario intitolato Googoosh: Iran's Daughter, che racconta la vita della cantante e il suo status di icona, descrivendo nel dettaglio le turbolenze socio-politiche che hanno portato alla Rivoluzione del 1979 in Iran. Realizzato dal regista iraniano-americano Farhad Zamani , il documentario ha iniziato la produzione nel 1998 ed è stato realizzato in un periodo in cui a Googoosh era ancora vietato rilasciare interviste.

Il suo ritorno in scena , per quanto inaspettato, ha segnato l’inizio di una nuova carriera . Googoosh ha deciso di non tornare in patria , vive attualmente tra Toronto e Los Angeles, ha ripreso a incidere brani e ha realizzato vari nuovi album. Oltre a tenere concerti in tutto il mondo si batte in difesa di quanti in Iran sono perseguitati dal regime a causa del le loro idea , della loro fede e del loro orientamento sessuale.
