All Songs Written & Arranged By Kamil Alipour
Persian Music is an ancient art form. Its roots can be
traced to the flourishing cultural germination that took place
under the Sassanid Dynasty (226-636 A.D.) after centuries of Greek
domination. Persian classical music is organized into seven scales
called Dastgah, with five smaller sub-scales to these scales called
avaz. Each of these scales require specific emotional considerations
exemplified by special melodic patterns called gushes- pronounced
goo-shehz. Spontaneous emotive impression is at the heart of this
art form but must adhere to the paths governed by the gushes.
At first this may sound constricting for the musician yet there
are approximately 250 different gushes distributed among the seven
dastgahs creating a myriad of possibilities.
Presently, the integrity and character of this precious and antiquitous
music must be preserved by those who have lived and breathed its
essence for a great number of years; a time requirement that encompasses
most of their lives. Kamil Alipour is such a musician. Kamil
Alipour began studying the Tar at the Tehran School of Music under
the guidance of Ustad (master) Ali Akbar Shahnazi. Later, Alipour
attended Tehran University with contemporaries such as Hossain
Alizadeh. There he finished his knowledge of Persian classical
music theory and studied Setar, Daff, and traditional singing
Alipour plays all the instruments found on this album with the
exception of the Zarb. These instruments include Tar, Setar, Daff,
and his voice. Tar is a six stringed guitaristic instrument made
of rare wood with thin lamb's skin stretched over the resonating
chamber. In Iran this instrument is known as the Sultan Saz, king
of Instruments, prided for its resonance and unique timbrel qualities.
Setar actually means three stringed, however, it has evolved into
an instrument containing two doubled pairs and a single resonator
string for a total of five strings. Daff is a large round drum
made from a hoop of hard wood with goat skin stretched over its
circumference to produce its deep bassy resonance.
Kamil Alipour has composed and arranged all of the music found
on this recording. He shows adept versatility on both Tar and
Setar creating some very beautiful solo improvisations; some that
took as much time to record as it takes you to listen. The larger
ensemble pieces show his special talents with regard to vocal
arrangement and self accompanying Daff playing. kamil Alipour
will become a very important player in the years to come, carrying
Persian classical music for future generations to enjoy.
was born in Tehran Iran. At age eight, she was introduced to singing
by his father, who had a great voice. Later she studied voice
and Persian Radiffs with Ustad Mahmood Karimi, then Ustad Mohammad
Reza Lotfi, Ahmad Rahmanipour and finally Ustad Kamil Alipour.
As a little girl she was fascinated with the Setar sound of Ustad
Ebadi, hence in addition to developing her voice she also learned
playing Setar from Mehrbanoo Toofigh and later Ustad Ahmad Rahmanipour.
