Kul-e Farah site in Izeh (Iran) is an ancient heritage of humankind that reminds us of the importance of music over the past millenniums. As stone carved in this site, the historical harp of NARSIA, a heritage of Elam civilization and Iranian history, has been re-developed after thousands of years through a series of studies and researches and has been employed in ICOM-Iran's Melody of Peace album as a Peace Symbol to serve posterity with an inception in the world’s ancient musical language...
Call for Iranian Lullabies
Lullabies of any nation could be considered as a massage of PEACE and a soulful melody. People of any genuine culture and obviously different Iranian origins do have a great tendency to preserve their childhood lullabies as an ancient piece of artwork. The history is a proof for this.
