Meet SilhoueTTT - The First All-Women Iranian Band

Yes. This five-minute gem of a video gets everything right.  Released in 1997, the group is made up of Lili, Tahmineh and Sepideh - three Iranian-American ladies who reside in California but sing in Farsi. Apparently, the group is the first all-women Iranian band. The single title  "Khorshid Khanoom" means Lady Sun in Farsi, and the video reflects the ladies' Earth Mother sensibility. With different colored hair pieces representing three of the four elements (air, fire and earth) the video shares aesthetic sentiments with the 1987 Cher vehicle, the Witches of Eastwick. I don't know what they're saying, but I'm digging their Bollywood-esque dance moves, the floating-heads blue screen, and the sensual clarinet solo. Check it out.
