“Good Enough for Us!” | A Song of Moon Ladies Assembly

Mah Banoo Assembly is an Iranian traditional band that was founded and directed by Majid Derakhshani in 2012. So far, three songs from this music band, most of whom are female musicians, have been released on the Internet. I admit the first time I saw these videos, I told myself, they are definitely outside the country, but then I asked myself “if they are not in Iran, why did they bother to wear Hijab?!

Those who watch the videos of these women on the Internet may think that "Iranian women are singing!" "So it is a lie that singing is forbidden for women in Iran!"

Yes! These brave women released these videos and were punished for it and tried in court. Their goal was to break down the barriers of the extremist and the dictatorial regime.

Likely, 90% of them will no longer be able to work as musicians in their own country because women singing in Iran is a red line, but fortunately, they can emigrate. Although the invisible hands of the tyrannical regime will follow them abroad, they will not stop fighting.

Lyrics

Like the way the sun shines!

Just a glance at the world

Good enough for us!

 

A warm breath and a passionate heart

Good enough for us!

Good enough for us!

 

In World’s garden

Flowers are given a smile

Good enough for us!

Like a dew

Just one teary eye in this world

Good enough for us!

Good enough for us!

Even though,

The day of reunion is impossible to arrive!

I know!

(achieving the ultimate goals)

 

Just the hope for a twilight

On the night of separation

Good enough for us!

 

Good enough for us!

If we failed short-sighted!

No grief!

As long as one clear-sighted speaks of us!

Good enough for us!

 

In this forgetfulness universe!

Ghodsi (The name of the poet)!

Just one eloquent word

Good enough for us!

 

Good enough for us!
