Folk Music from Khorramabad, Lorestan, Iran - Cassette published in Iran end of 1980s or beginning of 1990s

Khorramabad - Mahali (regional or folk music)


Beautiful recording of regional music from Lorestan. The folk music of Lorestan is mainly played on Kemencheh and Tombak. Both instruments are played here very differently from their use in classical Iranian music. On the second side one hears also an 'Ud (or Barbat). Good singer, good musicians. American edition of a cassette originally published in Iran.

"Khorramabad (Persian: خرم آباد‎ - Khorram Abād, Luri: خورمووه - Xormuve; also Romanized as Khorramābād, Khoramabad, Khurramabad, Khorram Abad and Khur Ramābād) is a city in and capital of Lorestan Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 328,544, in 75,945 families. Khorramabad is situated in the Zagros Mountains. The city population is predominantly Lur and Lak, although the two groups are closely related."
