Singing Genius Iraj in Book

Singing Genius Iraj in Book

‘Iraj, the Singing Genius of Iran,’ a book on the life and works of the acclaimed traditional Persian singer, will soon be brought out.
Author Ali Mohammad Khorshiddoust has compiled a collection of interviews, memory accounts, expert analyses and critical appraisals to create the work, ISNA reported.
Hussein Khajeh Amiri, 84, who is better known as Iraj, has introduced a unique singing style to the traditional, classic and pop music of Iran. According to many Iranians, including Master Gholam Hussein Banaan (1911-1986), a legendary Iranian musician and vocalist, Iraj’s voice is extraordinary and incomparable.
Since the age of 15, Khorshiddoust has been drawn to the voice. “Since then, Iraj’s voice has accompanied me in the ups and downs of my life.”
The brilliant collection Iraj has created so far will remain unique throughout history. “His voice will never find a match,” he says.
For a long time, he was thinking of writing a book about Iraj. “Unfortunately he is not known among the young generations. His style is missing in current Iranian music and this is why I felt responsible to write the book.”
Khorshiddoust has used the pieces and passages written by fans and friends of the singer in the book. He has also used expert opinions of musicians including vocalist Mehdi Asgharpour and violin virtuoso Payam Pazhouheshfar, alongside his own analyses.
The Isfahan-based publications ‘Tarrahan-Honar-and-Chahar-Hoz,’ is bringing out the book.
Iraj’s youngest son Ehsan Khaje Amiri, 32, is also an active singer.
