Googoosh was born Faegheh Atashin in Tehran, Iran, in 1950. Her parents were Azerbaijani immigrants from the Soviet Azerbaijan. Googoosh was very young when she started to do impersonations of the famous Iranian singers of the time. Seeing her talent and potential to become a professional singer, Googoosh’s father put her on stage at the age of three and Googoosh has been a performer since then.
Before she became an accomplished pop star in Iran, Googoosh had made her mark in films. In the 1950s, she worked in a variety of Persian films and continued to work as a film star till the Iranian Revolution of 1979. One of her films became the most commercially successful Persian movie of all time. She reached the pinnacle of her fame and success in the 1970s.
Meteoric Rise of the Style Icon
The Iranian society was going through an upheaval in the 1970s and not all of it was the cause of a preacher; it was Googoosh’s fashion sense and flamboyant outfits that made her an iconic female pop singer. Iranian women changed her hairdos when Googoosh changed her hair style.
Her music had an Arabic tinge to it. She sang ballads dealing with love and loss and was often therefore compared with Edith Piaf. She was a regular at the Shah of Iran’s court and was a favorite of the royal family.
Googoosh: Post-Iranian Revolution
Interestingly, Googoosh was in Los Angeles at the time of the Iranian Revolution and could have stayed in the US to avoid the regime. But her endless love for her land and its people brought her back to Iran, where she was forbidden to perform in public.
From 1979 to 1997, Googoosh did not perform. It was only after the election of a reformer, Mohammad Khatami as president that she was allowed to travel abroad to perform.
