Happy New Year from Kazakhstan, Roksonaki Music


More music…

"Roksonaki may be the most interesting avant-garde band to come out of Central Asia since the Soviet Union's collapse in 1991. Bringing the 13th century into dialogue with the 21st, their unique sound fluently and joyfully combines elements of ancient nomadic Kazak traditions -- reed flutes and throat-singing -- with contemporary rock and jazz.

Happy New Year from Shams and Rumi

Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished his heart. Whoever has polished his heart more sees more -- more unseen forms become manifest to him.

چه نزدیک است   جان تو به جانم        که هر چیزی که اندیشی   بدانم
ضمیر همدگر   دانند یاران                    نباشم یار صادق   گر ندانم
چو آب صاف باشد   یار با یار              که بنماید در او   عکس بنانم
اگر چه عامه هم   آیینه هااند              که بنماید در او   سود و زیانم
ولیکن آن به هر دم   تیره گردد         که او را نیست   صیقل های جانم
ولی آیینه ای عارف   نگردد              اگر خاک جهان بر وی   فشانم
از این آیینه روی خود   مگردان          که می گوید که جانت را   امانم
من و گفت من آیینه ست   جان را           بیابد حال خویش   اندر بیانم
خمش کن   تا به ابرو و به غمزه          هزاران ماجرا   بر وی بخوانم


دیوان شمس تبریزی

Happy New Year from Mohsen Namjoo - محسن نامجو


http://www.mohsennamjoo.at It's difficult to talk about oneself especially when it is easy to be misinterpreted and the misinterpretation can be widely spread through contemporary communication tools. In fact it seems that there is no one who wants to listen to you talking about yourself. We have also learned that the interpretations of the audience about one’s art work are not less valuable as than the intention of the author him/herself...

Happy New Year from Tajikistan - دلنازه

Tajikistan needs my help

بهاری ما جهانی را بزیبد : زمین و آسمانی را بزیبد همین یک لحظه ی زیبا که ماراست تمام زنده گانی را بزیبد.

باز باز می آيد اين بهار نازنيين ليک ليک نمی آيد اين دور جوانی

هر گه اگر که تنهايی را حس کند باز باز عزيز و عاشق می ماند

جوانی از محبت گردد آغاز به عشق همديگر صادق بماند

از آن تا که نبيند نوجوانی عزيز آن دائم عاشق مي ماند

In short, the people of Tajikistan are starving and freezing.

Happy New Year from Darius


This country Persia which Ahuramazda gave to me is a good country, full of good horses, full of good men. By the favor of Ahuramazda and of me, king Darius, this country fears no other country.

May Ahuramazda and the gods of the royal house come to my aid. May Ahuramazda protect this country from invaders, from famine, and from the Lie! May there never be upon this country an army, famine, or the Lie! This I pray as a favor from Ahuramazda and the gods of the royal house. May Ahuramazda and the gods of the royal house do me this favor!

Happy New Year from Leyla - لیلا

Continue below to read English translation

A few decades or so ago a little baby was born in the then booming city of Tehran, Iran. It was spring equinox, known as Naw Ruz, and my young, stylish grandma and grandpa were the lucky parents. Yes, it was my mommy who was born that night at midnight. Sure, in those days there were many challenges. Life was not perfect, as it rarely is. But little did my family know that those were to be, despite everything, the most carefree years of their life; a life that was to become increasingly harder and more traumatic.

When I look at my family’s black and white and then Kodak-brown photos of Iran, I see youth, energy, beauty. In all their photos, my family seemed to look toward their future with a sparkle and yet a wisdom or slight foreboding they could not have consciously anticipated then.

Things didn’t come as they had perhaps expected. When the revolution took its course, my family ended up with my great-parents, who had settled in Austria in the 1950s. Their wisdom crystallized in time, but as a result of much hardship and pain. Yet no matter what turn the rollercoaster of life has taken them, they rode along in it, as strong and dignified as they humanly could – always holding on to their Faith in God. Knowing some of the things my family has been through, and yet thinking of their strong, broad and heart-melting smiles as they defy some of life’s ugliest facets infuses me with great strength.

“Were it not for the cold, how would the heat of thy words prevail?...” it says in the Fire Tablet. This sentence has accompanied me for as long as I have known this Prayer. In this cold world, my mother has been a beacon of light and warmth, a gentle, kind and above all compassionate human being. Her compassion is so great, that it has the power to lift a person’s suffering as she completely absorbs it into herself. When I think of my mom I think of sunshine and flowers. And the irony is, that she thinks so little of herself.

One of her many gifts was to pass onto me the sweet and passionate Persian language and a love and ‘sense’ of Iran. My grandma, who was my other mother really, would often sit at night and read with me stories of rabbits and hedge-hogs, of snow-men and children, of everything that Persian children would read about in the books they had somehow salvaged. It was a tedious process for them to teach me Persian in Austria, back then, a very xenophobic country. But they did it anyway. And their stories of the Tajreesh bridge, of the fruit seller who would come around on his donkey, the stories of the various different neighborhoods, the romantic villages and villagers, the bazaars, the stories of the crazy Terooni drivers, of the mosques of Isfahan, of Chatanooga Café and the impressive Radiocity Cinema…all these things colored my childhood fantasy. I soaked it up and went there with them, to a place that they wanted to pass onto me, if only in spirit.

They’ve done a great job. It’s my mom’s birthday and I thank God for the blessing of her. It is because of her labor that I can even open my mouth and say anything coherent. Happy Naw Ruz mother – it’s a new day. And as cold and dark as the world may feel, it is the light of your likes that shows us the way. http://www.elham.tv

Happy New Year from Siavash Kasrai - سیاوش کسرائی


بهار می شود

یکی دو روز دیگر     از پگاه
 چو چشم باز می کنی
 زمانه       زیر و رو
 زمینه       شکاف می خورد
 به دشت    سبزه می زند
 هر آن چه مانده بود     زیر خک
هر آنچه خفته بود      زیر برف
جوان و شسته رفته          آشکار می شود

به تاج کوه
ز گرمی      نگاه آفتاب
 بلور برف      آب می شود
 دهان دره ها      پراز سرود      چشمه سارمی شود
نسیم هرزه      پو
 ز روی لاله های   کوه
کنار لانه های      کبک
 فراز خارهای    هفت رنگ
نفس زنان و خسته       می رسد
 غریق موج کشتزار        می شود
در آسمان
گروه گله های      ابر
 ز هر کناره        می رسد
به هر کرانه     می دود
به روی جلگه ها     غبار می شود

درین بهار ... آه
چه یادها
 چه حرفهای     ناتمام
 دل پر آرزو
 چو شاخ پر شکوفه       باردار می شود
نگار          من
 امید نوبهار     من
لبی به خنده باز کن
ببین چگونه از گلی
خزان باغ ما             بهار می شود

Happy New Year from Robert Frost


Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
        And give us not to think so far away
        As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
        All simply in the springing of the year.

 Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
        Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
        And make us happy in the happy bees,
        The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
        And make us happy in the darting bird
        That suddenly above the bees is heard,
        The meteor that thrusts with needle bill,
        And off a blossom in mid-air stands still.

                For this is love and nothing        else is love.

New York, Zoroastrians Prepare to Celebrate Zoroastrian Tradition of Naurooz



Friday, March 21

Zoroastrian Association of Greater New York (ZAGNY) today announced that Zoroastrian organizations throughout the United States and Canada will celebrate the important festival of NauRooz (pronounced Noh-Rooz), on Friday, March 21, 2008, marking the official celebration of the Zoroastrian New Year at the turn of the spring equinox. ZAGNY will mark the occasion with a prayer ceremony on March 21, 2008 at 4-30 PM at ARBAB RUSTAM GUIV DARBE-MEHR, 106 Pomona Road, Suffern, NY 10901. Media and the public are invited to attend.

“The beauty, meaning and symbolism of NauRooz can best be experienced by sharing in our traditions and understanding the depth and breadth of NauRooz as more than just a religious holiday, but a celebration of a New Day, and a resolve to work for a brighter year ahead,” said ZAGNY President Homi Gandhi. “While today we are not the only people to celebrate NauRooz, our customs, culture and traditions are unique to our religion and our story as a growing religious body in North America.”

Zoroastrians have long served as effective bridge builders in interfaith dialogue as they see from their own faith, traditions of truth, righteousness, charity, beneficence and respect for creation reflected in traditions of the religions of both the occident and the orient.

“The North American Zoroastrian community is vibrant and growing, and striving for togetherness by celebrating and perpetuating auspicious holidays like NauRooz,” says FEZANA president, Dr. Rustom Kevala. “As we grow in the North American diaspora, it is our responsibility to proactively reach out and educate the public at large, and to showcase the many contributions being made each day by Zoroastrians throughout North America, and indeed throughout the world.”

Zoroastrianism, founded circa 1500 BCE, is credited to be the oldest monotheistic religion, influencing post-exilic Judaism, which adopted some Zoroastrian beliefs such as the ultimate victory of good over evil and the resurrection of souls. These percepts were then transmitted through Judaism to Christianity, and later to Islam. Zoroastrianism flourished as the imperial religion of three Persian empires, those of the Achaemenians, Parthians and Sasanians, and was the dominant religion from Turkey, and eastward to China during those times. North America’s Zoroastrian community includes those who arrived from the Indian subcontinent, known as Parsis, and those who came directly from Iran seeking religious freedom.

Los Angeles, 18th Annual Celebration of Iranian Cinema at UCLA



March 14 - April 20

2008 marks the Archive's 18th annual Celebration of Iranian Cinema, and our program this year is as eclectic and diverse as ever. This year's offerings include seven new features from Iran and the Diaspora, as well as compelling new documentary and short works on film and video.


A major identifiable theme in this year's program is Iranian culture, whether it's pop culture—including a love triangle and murder that rocked Iran in 2002 (The Red Card) and provided steamy headlines for the Iranian tabloids for months; military culture in Night Bus and Those Three; small town culture in Dandelions Dance in the Wind; an irreverent and entertaining "history" of the city of Tehran in Tehran Has No More Pomegranates!; and an ode to one of the world's most important and enduring art forms in Persian Carpet, which features contributions by contemporary Iran's leading filmmakers, from Bahman Ghobadi to Rakhshan Bani-Etemad.

Nevertheless, most of the works in this series are by emerging directors and the program provides audiences with the opportunity to discover new filmmaking talent from Iran. We also hope to welcome several guests to present and discuss their work in person. Please check our website at www.cinema.ucla.edu for updates on in-person guests for this program.

All films are in Persian with English subtitles, unless otherwise noted.

Special thanks to: Mark Amin.

گفتم غم تودارم ای یارمهر افروز
خواهم ترا ببینم درجشن عید نوروز
گفتاکه بیست ودوم ازماه مارت میلاد
من میروم به جشنی د یدارحاجی فیروز
گفتم کجاست آنجا؟ رقص و موزیک دارد؟
گفتا که گفته شهناز درگوش من پریروز
درکانون اندیشه رقص و موزیک داریم.
گفتم میام عزیزم دیدار ما به اون روز

Toronto, Gift of Joy - Celebrate New Year and help support Iranian refugees



Saturday March 1 to  Sunday  March 30 

Persian New Year (Nowrooz) will be celebrated on March 20, 2008 at 1:48:19am. At this time families gather around the “Haft Seen” table to start the New Year together by feasting and celebrating. This year, like previous years, many queer Iranians who are seeking asylum will be spending New Year away from their home and families. This year IRQO is working on 80 of those asylum cases. We hope to share this special time with them, and therefore we are asking you to help us bring this gift of joy to their homes.


We suggest that you throw a simple party, and ask your friends and families also to take part in giving this gift of joy at such a special time by making a donation.

You may send your collected donations through PayPal services accessible on our website, or write a check to the Persian Gay and Lesbian Organization and mail it to the organization. We will distribute the collected donations among all queer asylum seekers. We hope to collect all donations by March 18, so the asylum seekers will have time to purchase clothing, food and pastry in preparation for New Year.

There will be a web page created for this purpose on the IRQO website. If you’d like to extend your invitation to a wider circle of friends and queer right supporters in your city, send us your event details and we will post it on the website. Messages, and if you wish, the name or name of your organization can be posted as well.

For donations please send your checks to the address below:

IRanian Queer Organization – IRQO

PH4-150 Graydon Hall Drive

M3A 3B3 Toronto, Ontario


Please make your checks payable to Persian Gay and Lesbian Organization. In addition, you can write on the check “to help Iranian queer asylum seekers celebrate Nowrooz”.

We will all work together and give this gift of joy to the Iranian queer asylum seekers.

For further information please email us at info@irqo.net or call +1-416-548-4171
