June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Stockholm, Sweden with Ann-Sofie Wensbo, Nora Emadén, and Sasha Semenova, singing “Låt ditt hjärta (Let Your Heart)” based on a talk given by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, October 2018, and was composed by Gloria Golmohammadi, Shahram Mansoory, Nora Emadén, Sara Vadeghani.
