Meanwhile, a court in Iran filed a lawsuit against members of the female Kurdish band Glaris due to their joint performance with a female singer and the publishing of music videos online.
Five members of the band will be charged and Iranian Cyber Police (FATA) blocked all the pages that posted the video clip. FATA interrogated all of the women singing in the clip, the owner of the store that the clip was recorded, and also the director of the production company that made the video.
This situation is not new for the band. The members of the group had previously been summoned to the city’s Islamic “morality police” with similar charges.
Glaris female music group was formed in 2017 in the city of Kermanshah. The band is famous among Kurdish community in Iran and has carried out various performances in different cities as well as in the Iraqi Kurdistan.
Last year, the group rejected an invitation from a Turkish TV channel during a period when the Turkish military forces was attacking Rojava.
