Lurish Concert to Mark Yalda

Faraj Alipour and Kourosh Asadpour, veteran singers of Lurish music (ethnic music of western and southwestern regions in Iran) will hold a concert on Thursday at the Ministry of Interior Auditorium on the occasion of Yalda, an ancient Persian festivity marking the longest night of the year (Dec. 21) and a celebration of winter solstice.
Alipour and his son Moslem will be both on kamancheh, while his other son Milad will play tar. Mahzad Kheradmand on kamancheh alto, Davoud Rahmanpour on santur, Maryam Khodabakhsh on oud, Mohsen Keyhan-Nejad on sorna, Mahour Zamanehpour on percussions and Ramin Maleki on dohol and daf will accompany them as well, Iranconcert.com reported.
Alipour, 59, recorded his first kamancheh piece in 1969. He has released numerous Lurish musical tracks so far and has given performances in Germany, France, England, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway and Australia.
Asadpour, 52, is from Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province and has released four albums, all in Lurish.
