Recorded by American archeologist Ralph S. Solecki in 1953 during excavation in the mountains of Kurdistan, this collection of Kurdish folk songs and dances features the two barreled reed flute, a drum, and various local singers. The authenticity and simple honesty in these songs shines through on this recording. Solecki notes that " much like the ballads of our Appalachian mountaineers…the songs deal with universal things, such as love troubles and war." Liner notes include translations of song lyrics as well as a brief explanation of Kurdish culture and history.
