Iran’s Diverse Musical Traditions at Asia House Past

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 ,
6:30 PM
- London, United Kingdom

This talk will survey Iran's rich and diverse musical traditions. On the one hand, there is Persian classical music or canonical repertoire, cultivated mostly in the centre of the Iranian plateau in the cities such as Qazvin, Shiraz, Isfahan and Tehran; and on the other, ‘regional musical traditions’. Iran has long been home to many ethnic groups including Turks, Kurds, Baluchis, Lors, and Arabs, who live mostly on the periphery of the current political boundaries. Each community has its own language and their own musical practices which indeed share many common features with the music of the same ethnic groups living outside Iranian borders. As there are many affinities between languages and musical styles, sung poetry has long been appreciated in Iran; musicians were often poets, and vice versa.
