BBC Radio: Dying for a song


In this excellent half-hour documentary radio program produced by Brian King and Rex Bloomstein for BBC Radio 4 in February 2017, you will hear Deeyah Khan tell her story: How she was forced to flee Norway in the face of violent threats from her own Pakistani community aimed at stopping her singing. And Iranian singer Mahsa Vahdat explains how she feels about being banned from singing in her own country because she’s a woman.
