Goodarzi Family Band

Contact artist


"Where I grew up in New England, my parents (both native of Iran) would always host jams for the different classical Iranian musicians they knew. these jams would start in the early afternoon and would often go straight through the night. Everyone played and sang, everyone switched instruments. Songs start and stop as each player cut and pasted traditional melodies (also known as "radif") together with improvisation. These recordings are from a "nowruz" or vernal equinox celebration, they are light celebratory tunes meant to welcome in spring. I love listening to these, hope you enjoy them too! - Omeed Goodarzi
