Persian Music - Part 1
In our fifth episode, we start exploring the rich world of Persian music. This episode is the first of a three-part series (Episodes 5, 6, and 7) where we answer questions such as: How many different types of Persian music do we have? Is there any difference between Persian music and Iranian music? Are the scales in Persian music the same as in Western music?
Our guest is Parham Haghighi. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and is a New York-based professional musician, singer, and educator. Parham is also the music director at Pardis for Children, where he teaches the Persian language and culture through music.
