Iranian traditional music, also known as authentic Iranian music, Iranian classical music and instrumental music. Including instruments, chants, and songs, flowed from the life of the Iranian people from years BC to today, and what was more pleasing, simpler and more meaningful is available today. Much of Central Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Republic of Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkey, and Greece are influenced by this music, and each has its own influences in shaping this music.

History of Iranian Traditional Music

One of the most important iconography in the world of music is what is left of Dezful’s ” TapehChoghamish “, which was found in AD 1961-1966. This 6-year-old seal shows a picture of a ramshackle potato. In this ancient pottery, there is a group of humorists, each of whom is entertained to play.

How these drummers play and sit shows that they are the world’s first band of orchestras. In this group of drummers, we see one player playing the harp and the other playing the trumpet and the other playing the trumpet. The fourth player is a singer who sings. Also in this ancient mat, we see a freeman sitting on a carpet and being welcomed.

We have a painting in our hand and we know that it was played in the Shokal Mah Ho kingdom in Iran from the 17th century BC. Finding a carving in Ilam again we know that the Iranian chefs were playing with Duff. The carving also shows that out of 11 tonnes of carpenter, 8 tonnes of harp, 2 tonnes of straw and one ton of pepper are played.

Since the Aryans entered, since the Aryan cults were not used to dance and music and were not highly valued, the two arts did not progress as far as they should and did not leave a footprint in the works and writings of those days.

Iranian traditional music consists of seven instruments:

Shoor machine- Segah device-Chahargah machine- Homayoun machine

Mahour machine- Nava machine- Rast Panjegah Machine.

Vocal (Iranian Traditional Music)

Vocalization is usually a part of the instrument that can be called an ancillary. The vocals are identical or similar in terms of distances to the instrument in question, and may have different controls or stops. Plain singing, for example, is a saline device belonging to the fifth grade and, for example, has saline and “R” stating, if we consider it saline. Thus in melodic saline singing, the rhythm of the melody circulates over the rhythm of the rhythm and eventually rests on the same rhythm.
