    Default My attempt at transcribing an Iranian protest song "Sarud-e Zan"

    Here's my attempt at transcribing this Iranian protest song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9Wd0tdM-rU



    There may be some minor things I missed, and it has an extra repeat I didn't write. I really wanted to put an F# before the G on bar 7 to give it an Esfahan feel but I can't hear that on the actual piece, so I didn't.

    And here it is transposed down a fourth (fits slightly better on oud, original version should be fine for mandolin):

    Music has such a long and powerful history in highlighting the wrongs of the world, Jo. It can stir the souls of people, unite them and put fear into the hearts of tyrants. Thanks for posting.

    Yes, thanks for posting this Jo.
    Iran enjoys such rich ethnic diversity, even greater than Europe!
    I’ve posted a map of their different languages.

    Languages like:

    Persian (Farsi, Luri, Bakhtiari, Bandari,
    Sistani, Qohistani, Khuzi, etc.)
    Kurdish (Sorani, Kurmanji, Gurani,
    Laki, Awrami, etc.)
    Gilaki (Bia Pasi, Bia Pishi, etc.)
    Mazandarani (Saravi, Baboli, Amoli, Lafori,
    Salousi, Kelari, Shahsavari, Delandi,
    Kholardi, Shahmirzadi, Firuzkuhi,
    Astarabadi, Katouli, Ghazikilai, Palani, etc.)
    Baluchi (Sarhadi, Lashari,
    Makrani, Sarawani, etc.)
    Raji (various dialects)
    Southern Tati (various dialects)
    Talishi (Gushtaspi, Rezvanshahri)
    Pashto
    Minabi, Bashagirdi, Qishmi,
    Kumzari (Shihu), etc.


    Amazing all the different music they must have.
