The eternal spring brings forth the season of Love -This song's name is goolha ( Flowers) and the singer is the Great Persian diva MAHSTI Mahasti: Khadijeh (Eftekhar) Dadehbala. She was born in 1946, younger sister of another very famous singer, Hayedeh. Her beautiful voice was discovered by Parviz Yahaghi, one of the most famous Iranian composers and violinists. She was one of the rare signers who "started" their work in Golhaye Rangarang, the most prestigious music program on Iranian National Radio, with the song named "Ankeh Delam Raa Bordeh Khodaya," composed by Parviz Yahaghi and with lyrics from Bijan Taraghi.
In the beginning, her family was reluctant to allow her to pursue a career in entertainment because it was not an appreciated career for women in Iran at that time. However, Mahasti overcame this stigma providing Iran with a new image for women within the entertainment industry. Mahasti created an image of a "gentle-woman" singer, a lady with great manners. Her enormous success in music opened the pathway for many other women, including her older sister, Hayedeh, who started her work about 5 years after Mahasti. These two sisters had tremendous contributions to improving the image of female singers in Iran and in transitioning the Iranian music from where it was to where it is now.
Mahasti married Kouros Nazemiyan and gave birth to her only child, Sahar. Mahasti and her family lived in Abadan for several years before finally moving back to Tehran. Her marriage with Nazemiyan ultimately ended in divorce but several years later she re-married to Bahram Sanandaji, an owner of a shoe factory, however their marriage also ended.
She eventually immigrated to UK in 1978 and a few years later to USA where she passed away. Music : MAHASTI: "Aay Bahareh" Editor and mixed by : Bahramerad
