Music: Dornob
Music: DornobAs part of the SDSU Music Department's World Music Series, Dornob will present classical, folk, and original music from Iran.

Dornob is a multi-cultural multi-generational collective of musicians who've been playing Iranian music(s) in San Diego since 1984. Their goals, in addition to friendship and fun, include learning the musical tradition, fostering creativity, and crossing cultural bridges.

The Musicians:

Stacey Barnett: voice
Mahmood Shamshiri: ney
Dara Bamoradi: qanun
Louis Valenzuela: oud
Masih Salafzoun: daf
Farhad Bahrami: tar

The Instruments:

The goblet-shaped tōmbak is the drum most often used in Persian music today. The tār—and it's smaller cousin, the setār—have been the main stringed instruments of Iranian music for the past few hundred years. In Persian, "tār" means "string". The ney is a simple bamboo flute played to produce a very special breathy sound. The daf is a large frame drum used in music from Kurdistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Armenia, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia.

Program Notes:

Just as Persian, Arabic and Turkish are names of languages widely spoken in the area known today as the Middle East, so are they names given to three related musical systems of that area. Even though Middle-Eastern music had a profound effect on European music prior to the 17th century, with the invention and adoption of the 12-tone system in Europe, Persian/Turkish/Arabian musics took a different evolutionary path, retaining their so-called "quarter-tones" which are absent from the 12-tone chromatic scale.

Persian, Turkish, and Arabic musics share a concept called maqām, which is similar to a Western scale. Persian music additionally uses a system called dastgāh, which provides a framework for navigating between different maqāms or scales. There are seven main dastgāh, each with its own mood and roadmap of tonal possibilities. The dastgāh system, like the majority of the world's music, is an oral/aural tradition, taught heart to heart from master to student. The repertoire used in teaching is called radīf. In the last century many melodies from the dastgāh system have been notated, however performances of Persian music, like jazz, always involve on-the spot creation and improvisation.

Some common forms include: Daramad ("opening" or free voice or instrument improvisation), PishDaramad (a stately composed piece to precede the Daramad), ChaharMezrab (an improvised virtuosic piece), Tasnif (song), and Reng (a composed, fast piece in 6/8 used to conclude a performance).
