Arranged by Saeed Farajpouri
Volals: Aziz Shahrokh   

Kurdish music is a treasure of different melodies and rhythms, which are distinguishable from each other based on their geographical origin and historical background. Kurdish melodies in this collection are mostly from the north-west of Iran, north of Iraq and south-east of Turkey and belong to the northern Kurdish (Badini) melodies. Poems are in Surani Kurdish dialect.
One specific musical feature of this collection is the usage of Bâdini musical instruments like Narmeh-Nay (Balaban), Divan, Sorna, Dohol, Dayereh and Daf. Arranging these instruments with musical instruments of the Persian classical music (Kamancheh, Oud, Bass-Tar and Tombak) has provided a decent match to the music of this local region.
This collection is accompanied by the warm chant of the famous and authoritative singer of Kurdistan, Ostâd Aziz Shâhrokh.
