Ebi: A Musical Icon’s Journey Through Time

Ebrahim Hamedi, better known as Ebi, is an iconic Iranian pop singer whose illustrious career spans over 50 years. Born in 1949 in Khorramdareh, Iran, Ebi’s musical journey began inspired by The Beatles. He formed various bands, including “the Rebels,” “Sunboys,” and “Black Cats” in the 1960s before embarking on a successful solo career.

In 1977, two years before the 1979 revolution in Iran, Ebi moved to Los Angeles, where he continued his musical pursuits in exile. Over the years, he released nearly 200 singles and over 30 albums, showcasing his versatility as a singer.

One of Ebi’s most famous songs is “Khalij-e Hamishegi-ye Fars” (Persian Gulf forever), known for its powerful lyrics by Adel Hassani and composed by Mohammad Shams. The song reflects his pride in his performance and remains a significant part of his musical legacy.

Ebi’s collaborative efforts include a joint album titled “Noon O Panir O Sabzi” with Dariush in 1990, as well as a joint world tour with Shadmehr Aghili called “Royaye Ma” in 2012. In 2014, he collaborated with Googoosh on the song “Nostalgia” and embarked on a joint world concert tour.

His discography includes the album “Jan-e Javani” in 2014 and the politically charged song “Hala” in 1999, addressing the Iranian political landscape. Ebi’s last album, “Lalehzaar,” was released in 2019, featuring the controversial song “Koocheye Nastaran” about the Iran–Iraq war.

Beyond his musical achievements, Ebi participated in the protests against Ebrahim Raisi’s presence in front of the United Nations and supported the Iranian protests.

As a musical legend, Ebi’s impact extends globally, and he continues to connect with audiences through his timeless songs. In 2022, he initiated the world tour “The Love Project,” unfortunately postponed due to COVID-19.
