Khorâsân music has a splendid variety, regarding to its geographical wideness and folks dispersion. So it is divided into two main categories: northern Khorâsân music, and southern and central Khorâsân music.

Northern Khorasan music
Different people such Kurds and Turkmens have settled in north of Khor
âsân. The original music around here is a Kurdish music called “Kormanji” which is the divide between Turkmen and eastern Khorâsân music. This music has two parts; vocal and instrumental.
The instrumental music is more like dance music, which often uses Qoshmeh and D
âyereh, Sornâ and Dohol, or 3-strings Kamâncheh and Dohol. The most remarkable songs of this area are Yek-Qarseh, Do-Qarseh, Shesh-Qarseh, Anâraki and Allâh-Mazâr.
Bakhshis’ and
Âshiqs are the narrators and singers of vocal music. Zohreh and Tâher, Navâyi, Kour-Oqli, Gerâyli, Tajnis, Shâh-Khatâyi, Lou, Dornâ and Jafar Qoli are the important vocal songs.

Southern and central Khorasan music
Music of this region is accompanied with Dutâr and is based on Gnosticism. Dutâr players and singer here are called “Oustâ” (Master in Persian). The poems are absolutely Persian. The most famous vocal and Instrumental songs of Southern and central Khorâsân are Jamshidi, Navâyi, Sheikh Ahmad Jâmi, Allâh Mazâr, Châhâr-Beyti, Maqâm-Allâh, Sarhadi, Ahoo, Maqâm-e Jol, Oshtor-Khajoo, Mashgh-Paltân.
