Yar-e-Dabestani e-man (My Classmate) – Iranian Song
September 3, 2016 Leave a comment
Yar-e Dabestaniye Man (“My Classmate” in Persian) first performed in the mid 1970s and became popular with the anti-Shah students in the colleges and universities in Iran. It is known to be Fereydoun Foroghi’s song. Ironically, this song like many other anti-shah songs later was revived against the Islamic regime by the anti-Islamic revolutionary student. I heard it many times during demonstrations of pro-reformists’ in 2004.
