Café Nouffe: Sussan Deyhim

I wasn’t aware of Sussan Deyhim until I heard an interview with her on PRI The World’s Global Hit. I had heard a shard of  her haunting voice before, as I learned, on U2’s Sunday Bloody Sunday. Now Deyhim has produced her own song – Neda’s Eyes – in tribute to Neda Agha-Soltan, the non-violent protester whose tragic death in a Tehran street became the iconic symbol for Iran’s Green Revolution in 2009. Deyhim’s dramatic vocal range makes me think of Diamanda Galás. Just listen to Glyphs of the Horizon.
