The region of Kermanshahan within the province of Kurdistan has a very distinct and ancient culture. Music is held in high esteem in this territory and the depth and diversity of the music make this region one of the most important within the musicology of Iran. Certain unique qualities of the tanbur music of Kermanshahan, such as those found in the intervals, rhythms, and melodic cycles, lend support to the view that this music bears close resemblance to the ancient music of Iran.
Moradi and Hadadi do it again

"Thisi is the second album from the magical duo. After hearing "Fire of Passion" i thought these two could not record anything better then that album. I was proven wrong after hearing a lvie performance of this album and buying it. Moradi has shown everyone that he is truly the master of the Tanbur. Pejman is also magnificent on Tonbak. Hadadi is not your typical traditional drummer, he is the most innovative drummer i've heard. The new techniques he uses on the tombak are controversialy exceptional. THis album is a must have."

This is absolutely one of Muradî's best albums! It entres you into a magical world of sufi contemplation and gnosis.
The religious music of the Kurdish Yarsanî cult is considered one of the most ancient and deep-rooted musical traditions in the world. Muradî plays this music with great depth and virtiosity, and is undoubtedly the greatest master (Mamoste) to represent this authentic tradition.
Regreatabely, Muradî and the tradition he represents are not known enough among Kurds outside Iranian Kurdistan.. Anyway, I hope that these recordings will help them to get to know this tradition and learn it better!"
