Product Description

traditional sounds of Persia are brought to life by instrumentalist playing the taar, a 6-stringed instrument w. a sheep skin sound board, 2 resonance chambers & 27 moveable frets; he also plays a similar instrument called the se-taar

From the Artist

Classical Persian music is an ancient art form. Its roots can be traced back to the flourishing cultural germination that took place under the Parthian (349 B.C.-226 A.D.) and Sassanid (226-651 A.D.) dynasties. This music is organized into seven scales and modes, called Dastgaahs with five smaller sub-sets to these scales, called Aavaaz. Each of these scales require specific emotional considerations exemplified by special melodic patterns called Gushes (pronounced goo-sheh). Spontaneous emotive improvisation is at the heart of this art form but must adhere to the paths governed by the Gushes. At first this may sound constricting for the musician yet there are approximately 250 different Gushes distributed among the seven Dastgaahs, creating a myriad of possibilities. Presently, the integrity and character of this precious and antiquitous music must be preserved by those who have lived and breathed its essence for a great number of years; a time requirement that encompasses most of their lives.
