Behrad writes, February 9, 2002: Assadolah Malek was an accomplished
violinist who was also responsible for many of Golpa, Mahasti, and "asseel"
songs of years gone by... When I say "responsible," I mean he composed,
conducted, and even played his violins for his songs.
Malek passed away, I believe a couple of weeks ago in Iran. I believe the cause was
cancer. They held a WAKE/MEMORIAL here in Los Angeles in his honor. NO ONE had his
picture, at least of this quality, to put in the magazines announcing his death!
I thought perhaps you would like to place his picture on your site asap to give him
his due honor.
Got any interesting nostalgic photos?
