A friend sent me this clip from a performance by Kuoban ensemble (formerly 40-daf) in Tehran.  It is a combination of Kurdish and Luri music. We recently had a trip to Sanandaj in Kurdestan.  The nature, people, music, and costumes are breath-taking and fascinating.  Delightful yet traditional, proud, and strong. Enjoy:

    What a wonderful and heartwarming display of Iran’s culture and roots! I am so happy to see that ensembles like Kuoban are performing in Iran and keeping the country’s roots alive.
