Female Vocalist Passes Away

Iranian traditional singer Sheyda Jahed passed away in Tehran on Sunday, (Feb. 28), after years of battling with cancer.
The veteran vocalist and wife of Masoud Jahed, a ney (a kind of flute) player, went into a coma on Thursday and died on Sunday night at Laleh Hospital, Mehr News Agency reported.
She cooperated in producing some music albums in which she was a co-singer along with her husband.
Although she had offers from other countries to perform, she stayed in Iran and held a number of concerts together with Kereshmeh music band, which she founded specifically for women in the country.
Jahed was one of the few female singers who sought to promote Persian classical music and continued her pursuits despite her illness in the recent years.
Her funeral procession will start from Vahdat Hall on Wednesday morning and her body will be buried in the special section for artists at Behesht-e-Zahra Cemetery in south Tehran.
