Old singers like Ebi, Moin, Homeyrâ, Leylâ Foruhar, ... migrated to West after the revolution. They couldn't sing here any longer; however, there were singers like Gugush (the best and most popular Iranian singer) who abandoned singing and remained in Iran. Gugush married a famous director and was in Iran until a few years ago when she went to Canada and since then, she is back to singing. I wish she had gone to Los Angeles like other singers and Iranians hadn't missed such a singer. Almost all pre-revolution singers migrated to West and we call them Losânjelesi (Los Angelesian) singers as most of them are in Los Angeles.
Shâdmehr had apparently some problems in getting license to issue his albums and he decided to migrate Canada. I don't think, with the shows he has played in, he can return to the country.
I don't know about Arash. He is one of those singers that I don't like. Perhaps, he belongs to the generation that has grown up in the West.
