The Nightingale of Iran: A Conversation About the New Podcast

Hosted By: Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA)

It was a golden age for Jews in Iran. In the 1950s, a religious Jew—Younes Dardashti—became a national celebrity, singing at the Shah’s palace and on the radio. In the 1960s, his son Farid became a teen idol on TV. They were beloved by Iranian Muslims. But at the height of their fame, they left the country. It has always been a mystery to Danielle Dardashti and her sister Galeet: Why did their family leave Iran? Now, in a documentary podcast series, the sisters reveal painful secrets unspoken for generations. Join the Dardashti sisters and JTA to hear more about the podcast, the incredible music their family shared, and the mysterious stories they uncovered.
