Dastgah of Shour

Vocalist Khatereh Parveneh, accompanied by a santour, sings verses from the "Masnavi," a famous mystical poem written in the 13th century by Jalal al-Din Rumi, the founder of the Mevlevi order of Dervishes. The verses are set in a free unmeasured rhythm, allowing great freedom for the addition of ornamentation and trills.
