Compiled and Arranged by Hossein Hamidi

In this set, the selected songs are the ones which were sung by shepherds during working in farms or some special events. “Red Goat” is a well-known shepherd song which still can be heard in Fars region, specially in Jahrom city. And the song “Winter” which is famous in eastern Mazandaran. Another old song is “Hâyna Hale Hâyna” which young Qashqai maids sing together during rice pounding for a wedding ceremony. “Allâh Madad” (God’s Aid) and “Nawâi” are songs which are orison songs by Dutar players in eastern Khorasan. “Child and Ice” and “That is Me, the Swift-footed Horse” are songs for children’s games. The motif of producing such collection is to introduce the listeners to the folklore songs of this land, which are presented by teenagers’ voices.
