5.0 out of 5 stars OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING!!! 12 Nov 2001
By John Grunwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've loved music from the "Middle East" for many years now, and perhaps when I started out I had an idealized "sound" that I was searching for. Over the years my tastes have broadened, as well as my knowledge base, so I can understand the music a little better. Nevertheless, I've always wanted to find that one IDEAL Mid-Eastern music. THIS ensemble is it! This obviously isn't Arabic classical music. This is fiery, energetic, downright gorgeous music of the highest order! Hammered dulcimers, huge frame drums, bowed instruments, plucked instruments, a huge chorus of men's voices echoing a brilliant solo vocalist. I swear that this sometimes sounds like music from some long-forgotten shamanic tradition, the likes of which hasn't been seen in that part of Asia for many, many centuries. Have you ever wondered why orthodox Islamic theologians and scholars sometimes describe music as an intoxicant? Well, listen to the Kamkars and you'll know why. I can't say enough about this recording. If you're at all curious for any reason, you MUST hear this CD. YOU REALLY MUST! ARGH! IT'S SO DAMN GOOD THAT WORDS REALLY CAN'T DO IT JUSTICE. I laugh and laugh. I don't know why...

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable in this age and time!!! 14 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Kamkars, a Kurdish family of seven brothers and a sister, are undeniably one of the leading musical ensembles in Iran today. Their repertoire ranges from the vast array of Kurdish music with its poignant, entrancing melodies and uplifting high energy rhythms to the traditional classical music of Iran. The repertoire of Kurdish music is richly diverse and deeply-rooted in the ancient history and culture of its proud and passionate people. It speaks of epic tales and wars, romantic love, and recounts ancient myths and stories of national and religious heroes, some of which date back to thousands of years to the time of the ancient Medes (the ancestors of the Kurds).
They are great in concert. Amazing, a whole family sticking together musically!!!

I want to tell the world, and I want to keep them secret.

This is the best band on the plant, and I don't want them spoiled... OK?
