Founded by Norwegian/Pakistani artist, Deeyah, an award winning film and music maker, Fuuse Mousiqi is a music company with a social conscience, born out of the union of a passion for music, art and activism. The inspiration and purpose behind Fuuse Mousiqi is to explore the intersections of self-expression and activism, realising that every act of self-expression has a political and universal dimension – that whether raised in speech or song, our voices are the source of our power.

A tribute and a celebration of the female voice of Iran

Though the art of music in Iran has suffered persecution through parts of its existence, it has an even stronger history of surviving and finding a way towards life because the artists serve, shelter, preserve and transmit this exquisite music throughout time. It continues to live and expand as master artists, such as the women presented here, who have devotedly maintained and expanded the tradition, perform all over the world.

This Fuuse Mousiqi WOMAN series presents the voices and music of contemporary women who are the artistic bearers of their indigenous and ancestral forms of music and heritage. It is a celebration of the female voice, the voice of mother, sister, daughter, the voice of history, of nature, creativity, life, compassion and the future.

The voice of the contemporary women

«The WOMAN series is my way of honouring and celebrating women, and my personal exploration through the indigenous and traditional music of their lands. This anthology forms a tribute to the women of Iran especially their courage, and to the exquisite and rich musical heritage of Iran. It is with pride, humility and a deep sense of gratitude and admiration, that I present the voices of contemporary Iranian women.» – Deeyah
