Fârs province has been always one of the most important centres of manifestation of identity and culture of Iran. In this province there live protectors of original music and culture of Fârs, who has transferred it to the next generation, despite some non-Farsi realms such as Qashqai Turks, Boir-Ahmadi and Arab tribes.
Jahrom city is one of the important centres of music in Fars. Precedence of music in this region goes back to The Sasanian Empire and the famous old musician, Bârbad-e Jajromi.
Estahbânât (Sabunât), Lâr, Fasâ, Nobandegân, Kâzeroon and Shirâz are some other origins of folklore songs of Fârs.
Folklore songs of Fârs, which consist Persian poems, are usually played by Târ and Tombak and it’s close to Radif music in Iran. Use of instruments like Kornâ, Sornâ and Farsi Naghâreh is also common.
“Tasnif-e Jahromi”, “Saboutay Hoy Bebâr” and “Zang-e Shotor” are some old and original Farsi songs in this collection. “Oy! Hamumi!” is also a famous song which has a common sense with Lori songs that are mostly played in wedding ceremonies in Kâzeroon and Noorâbâd-e Mamasani region. As we have accompanied Kornâ in “Saharâvâzi” which is one of the most famous instrumental Qashqai songs.
This collection is a new effort for remaking the songs of Fârs province, with the usage of instruments of that area.
