Arya Aramnejad is a popular Iranian musician from Babol in the northern part of Iran. In 2018, he was welcomed in Stockholm as the first musician hosted by the city in the ICORN programme. He has since staged several concerts and collaborated with many Swedish musicians. He will have a new album released soon, hopefully this year.
His song I will kiss you one day has a fighting spirit, it displays his undisputable love and affection for the people of Iran and a clear hope for the future:
«….I will kiss you when the sounds of bullets have ceased
I will kiss you when all the weapons have been laid down
I will kiss you behind the prison cells’ doors when they don’t smell of torture.
When there is no wounds laughing on our bodies
when there is no tears in our eyes….»
