Iles Formula Women this week is pleased to introduce GOLAZIN (@golazinmusic) who is a singer / songwriter who grew up in Isfahan, Iran. Radical restrictions for all female musicians and political unrest drove her to leave her home country in order to pursue her passion for music.
Following her cover of one of world music icons, Idan Raichel's songs, she was approached by himself and has since performed with him on stage. Using her cherished culture and her extensive knowledge of both Eastern and Western music, Golazin has begun to create records that remain true to both worlds, with an underlying message of raising awareness of Iran. The restrictions in place for female singers in Iran fueled Golazin’s decision to move to London in 2006. She began studying for her Masters and then PhD in Music Psychology, whilst also performing in the UK and France.
Her debut single, “Miri” has already received over 2,000,000 listens, and her latest single “Booseh” has been played more than 800,000 times in less than a month. We are pleased to have her in our Journal!
