Anthony Byan Shay describes Iranian folk music as the one of the oldest and most influential cultural traditions in the Middle East. He writes: “The far-reaching influence of Persian music is felt in Europe, the Soviet Union, Africa, and the Far East.” Folk Songs and Dances of Iran features famous folk songs such as “B+£m+ª Boland (The High Rooftop),” a song from “the famous city of wine, roses, and poets, Shiraz.” Also included are dances such as the “Raghs+ª Chubi,” a brutal dance performed before the Bakhtiari tribe’s migration from the steppes to the mountains. In the “Raghs+ª Chubi,” “dancers armed with sticks attempt to crack the shins of their fellow dancers.” Liner notes include a description of Iran, track notes, and translated lyrics.
