A classic Lyrichord recording by world music pioneer Verna Gillis.   Ms. Gillis recorded this fascinating field work during one of her trips to Iran in the early 1970s. She ventured deep into the Zargos mountain region to Luristan, and to the southeastern Fars province - the birthplace of the Persian language, Farsi. On this recording, she captured the indigenous folk and love songs and traditional instruments of these ancient people.  Instruments on this recording include the Nay, Setar, Zurna, Dumbeck, Kemantche and Narghareh drum.
