This soundscape showcases the powerful voices of the female artists from pre-revolutionary Iran that are on display in our Soheila Sokhanvari: Rebel Rebel exhibition.

The audio extracts are taken from songs, films, monologues, and poems of the time, and have been digitally restored from VHS and vinyl formats. The soundscape is composed by Marios Aristopoulos.
