Iran’s northwestern city of Tabriz hosted a concert titled, ‘Don’t Go without Me,’ performed by Hesameddin Seraj and Atabak Atri with the cooperation of the Taraneh Band in Tabriz on June 21, and 22.
Iran’s prominent music player Ardeshir Kamkar also performs at the concert, ISNA reported.
Speaking about the history of joint concerts with different Iranian tribes, Seraj said that the first joint concert was staged in 2017 in the Ministry of Interior’s Hall in Tehran.
Seraj said that Persian music and music from Azarbaijan region have a lot in common.
Touching upon the history of art in Tabriz, Seraj said that there have been great music masterpieces in the city which must be preserved.
All Iranian music pieces must include a kind of innovation. Otherwise, they are doomed to fail, the vocalist added.
The dynamism of Iran’s current music is owed to great musicians such as Seraj and Kamkar, Atri said.
Kamkar said that music is an international language that can convey each kind of feeling.
Iranian music is an integration of music compositions made by artists from various parts of Azarbaijan, Baluchestan, Khorasan, Kurdestan and other provinces, he noted.
On the importance of teamwork, Kamkar said that any country’s music cannot flourish except through collaboration between several artists.
