World Music Library - Iran - Music of Iran I

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, March 30, 2014 Under
This dazzling recording includes various classical and semiclassical forms, ensemble and solo, vocal and instrumental, in a wide range of dastgahs, recorded in Tokyo in 1989. The iffy English-language notes don't tell one anything about the 12-person group qua group, though the musicians are named and there's a certain amount of general and recording-specific information. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music, All Music Guide

This is the first recording to introduce the post revolutionary music of Iran, a style adding the western taste onto practices of Iranian traditional music. An exquisite ensemble performance of traditional instruments and Avaz, a style of vocals.
