Sitar

a Musical Instrument Rooted in Iran

 26 December 2003

 

 

Sitar which is considered an Indian musical instrument has its roots in Iran and has undergone transformation as a result of the influence of Indian music. Its name is Iranian and its playing manner is close to that of the Iranian instruments, announced secretary of the fifth festival of Navahi-Maghami (a type of folklore) music.

He believes that due to Iran’s interactions with its neighboring countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Turkey, many of the Iranian instruments have traveled abroad, adopting themselves to their new situation.

“An Indian music researcher, Dr. Marsha, is planning to come to Iran to carry out some research on the sources of sitar and the influence of the Iranian music on the Indian one,” he added.

The festival will be accompanied by ceremonies to commemorate the Navahi-Maghami music players of various regions of Iran who have passed away this year. An exhibition of different Navahi-Maghami instruments, CDs, and photos will also be set up.
