Nowrooz Music (1): Gol-e-Pamchaal


Nowrooz Music (1): Gol-e-Pamchaal
by Sadra

"Gol-e-Pamchaal" is the oldest Nowruz-time song I can remember. Though it was originally performed by Rouhparvar and later  Nasser Massoudi, singers from Rasht in Gilan Province, it was later performed by multiple artists, male, female, and children.  Something about this song is very uplifting and joyful.  Here are a few different renditions of the favorite Iranian oldie.  Enjoy and peesh be sooye Nowrooz-e-Pirooz!

My favorite song for spring is "Baharan khojasteh baad"

by Anahid Hojjati on

This song reminds me of the immediate days after 1979 revolution when people were hopeful for a better Iran. later hopes turned to fear but the song always brings smile to me and suggests renewal and possibilities.
