Ahmad Mousavi (Sayed Ahmadreza Mousavi) , an Iranian singer, songwriter and musician, Says about original Iranian music:

Original Iranian music is known under such titles as traditional Iranian music, Iranian classical music or instrumental music. Original Iranian music is a collection of instruments, songs and chants that are still going on among the people of Iran before Christ. Among the countries that have been effective and influential in the formation of this type of music, the following can be mentioned:

Middle Asia







It should be noted that the original Iranian music series was registered as the first independent file of Iran in October 2009 in the list of intangible world heritage.

The alphabet of traditional Iranian music

As you know, the world of music is full of foreign and fascinating words, some of which we have not even heard. In this section, we will discuss some of these alphabets and names:

Gosheh-e-Maqam: The smallest identifying part of the original Iranian music series is called Gosheh-e-Maqam, which includes old songs that are sung in different parts of Iran.

Instrument: Some corners of the original music, because they are located in a specific area, therefore have the same atmosphere.  All the corners with the same climate are collected in a set called the device.

Singing: A set of several song corners. Songs belonging to the original Iranian musical instrument such as Abu Atta (belonging to the Shoor system), Bayat Turk song (belonging to the Shoor system), Afshari song (belonging to the Shoor system), Dashti song (belonging to the Shoor system), Bayat Kurd song (  Belongs to the Shoor instrument), Avaz Bayat Isfahan (belongs to Homayoun)

Iranian Music Row: A collection of all Iranian songs and corners have been collected in an Iranian book called Iranian Music Row.  The row of Iranian music is in fact the encyclopedia of Iranian traditional music.

Ink Reading: This model of reading that the musician starts from one device and enters another device is called ink reading.

Shahed note: The note that has the most use in each instrument and song is called Shahed note.

Step: In Western music, step is a device that consists of two categories, minor and major.

 Repertoire: Equivalent to row in Western music.

Dong: Each of the four notes that are placed in a row is called a dong.

How many instruments does Iranian traditional music have?

The line of original and traditional Iranian music consists of two main and sub-sections. The main part of this original music consists of 7 instruments, each of which has its own characteristics. It is interesting to know that these 7 musical instruments cover most of the regions of Iran and contain many songs. These 7 devices include the following:

People who love music and listen to music for a few minutes every day, their souls are healthier than other people.
