Iranian musician Arya Aramnejad was recently sentenced to three months in prison because of his song Ali Barkhiz, the video for which you can see above. In a letter to the Iranian authorities, numerous artists are joining Freemuse, the leading organization international organisation which advocates freedom of expression for musicians and composers worldwide, to express deep concern about the continuous persecution of their colleague, asking for his immediate release. The list includes visual artist Larissa Sansour, producer/artist Deeyah, South African singer-songwriter Roger Lucey, African rapper Outspoken, and rapper and performer Behrang Miri from Stockholm. Visit Freemuse’s website to find out more and learn how you can support this effort.
