Sogand Soheili aka ‘Sogand’ is a German based Iranian hip hop artist. Many of her fans have compared her voice and style to Lady Gaga. Here is a sampling of her work. 

In this song, she takes an old folksy tune from rural southern Iran (Shirazi accent) and skillfully dresses it up with a modern vibe, and yet manages to preserve the emotional content of the song.

Simply but beautifully performed.
