A country like Iran can boast 1000′s of Years of musical history and it is said that Opera has it’s roots in Persian music. When looking through Iranian musical histroy I discovered a guy called Vigen Derderian know as the sultan of Persian jazz introduced the guitar to Iranian pop music in the late 1950′s but was shunned because of his Armenian Descent when the Regime took over in 1979. Anyone know of any Instrumental Track he may have had please feel free to share in the comments below. I think this is a good example of Traditional Iranian music which is vocal free how about you do you know a better piece of Instrumental music from Iran ?.
While browsing the internet for new tunes without words I discovered this one from Nepal it’s mystical and uplifting at the sametime. As for the Title “Kantipur Folk” I am not sure about it as Kantipur seems to be just some district of Kathmandu as there is not much published online about it.
Following an update from Google on Google + saying Happy National Day to Bulgaria I thought It would be a good day to post this tune. It was recorded in Sofia in 2009 and is traditional sounding Bulgarian music as far as I know.
The Harp has a sound like all traditional instruments that is so mystical and relaxing. To many the sound of the harp is soft and comforting to all of us. But we don’t really know the names of many of the harpists and just tend to listen to it’s mellow celtic flowing sounds and just hope we will hear the tune been played again somewhere. So I am going to give you two words to remember when looking for harp music again and they are “Parallel Latitudes” which is the name of Cheyenne’s Brown’s Album .
