Margins of Googoosh concert

Googoosh was born Faegheh Atashin in 1951 on Sarcheshmeh Street, in an old part of Tehran, to Azerbaijani immigrant parents from the former Soviet Union. When she was two, they separated. Because of her father’s profession – he was an acrobat and an entertainer – she grew accustomed to the stage early on, and was part of his act until she was three.
