Who is Ebi?

Ebrahim Hamedi, known better by his stage name Ebi, is one of the most famous and influential Iranian singers of his time. He is widely known for his expressive voice and is considered one of the best singers of his generation. He lives in exile in Marbella, Spain, although he also spends time in Los Angeles. Since the Islamic revolution in Iran he mostly tours the world, having combined musical influences from traditional Persian music, western pop and sometimes Latino style rhythms.

Exiled from Iran since the Islamic Revolution he has taken an active political stand against the Iranian regime; but has also performed his Iranian nationalistic song "Persian Gulf" that makes reference to the Iranian stand in the Persian Gulf naming dispute. Among other "politically charged" songs, Tasmim critically addressed the very controversial 2009 presidential election.
