In Memory of Pouran

The name Pouran evokes fond memories for the generation who lived in Iran during the three decades before the Islamic Revolution. Born in 1934, she started her singing career at the age of eighteen. Radio had just found its way into people’s homes, and in the absence of television and other more modern media, it enjoyed the exclusive advantage of reaching millions of listeners all over the country. With its primary emphasis being on music, it became the main vehicle for singers and musicians to achieve fame and popularity.

But this was not the only lucky coincidence for Pouran. Her aunt, Ruhbakhsh, was a celebrated singer in the 1940s, and through her she met many renowned musicians, including her future husband, Abbas Shapouri. He soon discovered this young students’s abilities in the course of training her voice. Their marriage, although lasting only eight years, resulted in a very fruitful musical partnership which produced scores of memorable, popular songs.

Pouran was in America visiting her children when the Revolution broke out in Iran. She stayed there many years before returning to Iran, where she faced many problems and finally died of breast cancer at the age of 56. In this multimedia report, Pouran is remembered by her sister, Gity Daryabeigi.

Ms. Pouran was one of the best sngers in Iran. But, now many people don'y know who's she. When I was seven I saw she in a concert. I listened to she and enjoyed her voice.
Thanks for this report.

this was among the first lovely report I saw in jadidonline and fell in love with it. I heard Mis pouran"s song thru radio Tehran when I was first grade in Gilan and thru her songs we learned Farsi correctly. I clearly remember that she presented the song (shaneh) on Norooz1335 . The announcer asked her , what she brought back from her trip to Greece ( with Mr shahpouri) , she named this song and it was not a copy from Fairuz, the arab singer who later, copied the song and produced it in arabic.
special thank to her sister who arranged this report and gave us the opportunity to give our salutation to Pouran and appreciate the 30 years of hard work in Music.

i saw ms. pooraan in a concert she gave at cinema taaj in my hometown of abadan in the early 1950's. i was, perhaps, about in the first or second grade elementary school.
my dad took me with him, against my will. for, i remember, it was friday morning and had rained the day before. all i wanted to do was to go out and play soccer on the street with other kids at our lane! (he, aghaam, was kargar-e- sherkat-e- naft. may the blessings of allah be upon him in heaven).
anyhow...we sat at the third or fourth row in the mid section. i remember vividly, i could clearly see her face, her lips moving and all. i remember she was wearing a one piece, sleeveless, knee-lenghth, beautiful dress. i remember it was navy blue, too.
i thought she looked exquisitely beautiful. i was more in awe of her beauty than her concert. poor, child me!
thanks for pleasant times you gave us with your music, ms pooraan.
and, god bless you, wherever you are.
