Dariush Dolat-Shahi - Electronic Music, Tar and Sehtar
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.
