Killer collection of traditional Persian classical music on the reliable Unesco Collection series.  Beautifully recorded and hugely evocative of the land it originates from, the pieces range from stirring acapellas, stripped flute motifs and more rhythmic percussive passages. But where this one comes into its own is the immensely hypnotic string pieces which utilise repetition and the swirling overtones to deadly, psychedelic effect.  Extensive liner notes as always detailing instruments used and context of the music.  (Vinyl + Sleeve VG+).
