"THE KAMKARS The Kamkars, a Kurdish family of seven brothers and a sister, are undeniably one of the leading musical ensembles in Iran today. Their repertoire ranges from the vast array of Kurdish music with its poignant, entrancing melodies and uplifting high energy rhythms to the traditional classical music of Iran. The repertoire of Kurdish music is richly diverse and deeply-rooted in the ancient history and culture of its proud and passionate people. It speaks of epic tales and wars, romantic love, and recounts ancient myths and stories of national and religious heroes, some of which date back to thousands of years to the time of the ancient Medes (the ancestors of the Kurds)."
Powerful music from Iran

"This Iranian-Kurdish ensemble doesn't have the renown of recent world music star acts such as Pakistan's Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan... but they ought to. This live performance crackles with power and hypnotic immediacy. I dunno how to describe it, other to say that it is quite captivating. Recommended."
