Iranian-born singer Sussan Deyhim, who contributed to the soundtrack of Ben Affleck's new Oscar-buzzed movie "Argo," as well as to Joe Jackson's new Duke Ellington tribute album, has canceled her scheduled Oct. 14 concert at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown L.A.
A spokesman confirmed the cancellation but provided no reason for it.
Deyhim, whose repertoire includes classical, pop and traditional Persian music, has been described as one of "Iran's most potent voices in exile" and "an earthy, erotic chanteuse" by Times music critic Mark Swed.
She has worked on a number of film soundtracks including "Argo," which is set during the 1979-81 Iran hostage crisis. On Jackson's "The Duke," Deyhim sings a version of "Caravan" translated into Farsi.
