about

Fared Shafinury is a critically acclaimed composer, vocalist, setarist, and multi-instrumentalist classically trained in Western music and Iranian classical music. He morphs the ancient sound of Persian seter with influences from the Gulf of Mexico, Big Sur California, the villages of Iran and Tehran. This is a rendition of the well-loved resistance anthem Yare Dabestani ("My Grade-School Friend") that is dedicated to the students and youth of Iran for their courage and perseverance. www.faredshafinury.com

lyrics

يار دبستاني من
يار دبستاني من
يار دبستاني من
يار دبستاني من

Schooldays friend of mine
Schooldays friend of mine
Schooldays friend of mine
Schooldays friend of mine

با من و همراه مني
چوب الف بر سر ما
بغض من و آه مني

You're with me at my side
A ruler above our heads –
You're my scar and my sigh;

حک شده اسم من و تو
رو تن اين تخته سياه
ترکهٔ بيداد و ستم
مانده هنوز رو تن ما

Engraved on this blackboard
Are your name and mine
Tyranny's welt on our flesh
Has not faded with time

دشت بي فرهنگي ما
هرزه تمام علفاش
خوب، اگه خوب
بد، اگه بد
مُرده دلاي آدماش

The fields of our culture
Have grown wild with neglect,
Come the good or the bad –
People's hearts are now dead;

دست من و تو بايد اين
پرده ها رو پاره کنه
کي ميتونه جز من و تو
درد ما رو چاره کنه

My hand and yours
Must tear the weeds away
Who but you and I
Can cure our pain?

کي ميتونه جز من و تو
درد ما رو چاره کنه
کي ميتونه جز من و تو
درد ما رو چاره کنه

Who but you and I
Can cure our pain?
Who but you and I
Can cure our pain?
