About Mohsen Namjoo

Mohsen Namjoo, (Persian: محسن نامجو‎‎), is an Iranian singer-songwriter. His style of music is influenced by blues and rock as well as Iranian folk music. The lyrics of his songs are also a combination of Persian classical poems, his own lyrics, and contemporary poems; Namjoo uses the words freely, infusing them with irony and sarcasm to carry the music and to create a free style form of singing. An Iranian correspondent for the The New York Times in Iran wrote that “some call him a sort of Bob Dylan of Iran”

In 2006 the Iranian judicial system sentenced Namjoo in absentia to a five-year jail term for allegedly ridiculing the ash-Shams, a surah of the Quran, in his song “Shams”. The conviction took place in spite of his formal apology. After establishing in the West, the song was released as part of his album Oy. (Wiki)
