Patriotic Persian song called Vatan, by Alireza Assar.
Nice music & the images during the first 60 seconds precious.
After 60 secs images become a bit political (I think) but the music & singing are what some of you might find interesting.

I haven't... but there were wild lions in Shiraz/Pars province up until the 40s. Do you know who it is by and when it dates from?

Of Iranian singers, I like Shakila a lot since the lyrics are quite meaningful. What's more she's really a MUSICIAN, rather than a model, like modern day Iranian girl singers.

Of her works, there comes a song, I don't know the name, but she says:

'Bar Elaha Madadi Kon, Ze To Ghafel Nashavam'. You know the song, Zagors? By the way, I've heard she's a doctor. Is that right?

Yes i know the song, the name is "Darvish". I doubt she is a medical Doctor, if you meant this. At least i havn't found anything about it here: http://www.shakila.com/

Alireza is an excellent singer, and many times the Islamic republic asks him to sing nationalistic songs such as this and they put it on national tv, to keep support for the regime up I guess.

Persian Armed Forces makes great videos, his interest is military if you guys could tell with the video...LOL

Here is one of his best videos (Iranian rap song included):

"Farid Farjad was born in Tehran in 1938. Upon receiving his masters degree in classical music from the Tehran Music Conservatory in 1966, he won the First Violin Seat in the Tehran Symphony Orchestra and was appointed to serve a tenure at the conservatory to teach classical violin."
 
"Farid's profound knowledge of Persian folk music and his gifted ability to draw on the highly advanced techniques of Western classical music has given life to an innovative style of violin performance in playing Persian music."

Cool.  Alireza Assar has a great voice.  The beginning of that video is precious.

Yea, I only like the first half of the song though, the singing is not harmonious with the music...

Great music..
I'm a big fan of world music and listening to these Persian songs brought back memories of Ross Daly's concert.  Anyone heard of him ??  He's Irish, but now lives in Crete and can play a myriad of traditional instruments, from Irish, to Greek, Turkish, Middle Eastern etc
