Iranian women challenge society and fill the atmosphere with music

Barrameda has a wide international reputation

Mixed concerts are illegal in Iran, but they happen anyway, far from the eyes of the morality police. In this atmosphere, some female DJs fill the halls with songs and music, breaking taboos and crossing the limits imposed on them. The BBC went to interview them.

The Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 turned the country’s cultural life upside down.

The Islamic Revolution banned pop music, which was considered non-revolutionary, causing many musicians to flee. At the same time, the authorities ruled that women’s singing was forbidden and contrary to religious teachings.

This wiped out the once thriving pop music and nightclub scene overnight. But behind closed doors, some things continued as before.
