This tradition is specifically from Northeast Iran, although it is similar in outline to the dotâr centered in Uzbekistan and extending into Chinese Sinkiang. It has few practitioners today. The recital is almost hypnotic in its instrumental ostinato effects, and includes epic lyrics in Turkish, Persian & Kurdish.
