Dariush Dolat-Shahi - Electronic Music, Tar and Sehtar

Sorry all for the lack of posts, I'm a busy guy and only want to put up really choice and hard to find material.

A friend recently copies me the 1985 Folkways release 'Dariush Dolat-Shahi - Electronic Music, Tar and Sehtar.' Dariush Dolat-shahi is an Iranian-American composer and instrumentalist on the tar, the traditional Persian lute. His compositions include electronic and instrumental music as well as music for traditional Persian instruments.

I included in the album folder a text file with a interview with him for a little more information. No info on this release though. Its pretty tripped out and the blend of Electronics, Tar/Sehtar, and ambient recordings is amazing!!! I have a feeling that he's using a Buchla for the electronics, a very rare cult synthesizer if you didn't already know.

Highly Recommended!!!
Dariush Dolat-Shahi

This is an incredible work. Quite a bit of the electronics remind me of Moolah's LP.

Outstanding blog. Thanks for the Ghedalia Tazartes - Diasporas & Tazart├Ęs post. Do you by chance have anything else Alga Marghen released such as Hermann Nitsch, Anima Sound, or David Bohrn? Thanks. Also if somebody want to just recommend cool stuff to me i would appreciate it.

Hip label Dead Cert just reissued this. Heard of the news via

Strange to see all of the stuff make its rounds down here and then up there in daylight. Happening more and more often. This one was definitely a surprise.
