Acoustic World - Persia
This is a fascinating disc of music from the rich and ancient culture of Persia. The differing traditions of classical and folk music are represented here, played on the ney and the sorn?, as well as sung. The ney is often described as the world’s oldest instrument, whilst documents exist showing that in the 6th-4th centuries BC the sorn? was accompanying dancing in the south-west Iranian region of Lorest?n. Celebrated musicians Hossein ‘Omoumi, Shahmirza Moradi and Simâ Binâ who feature on this disc are among the world’s finest innovators of Persian music.
