New Internet Radio for Persian Music
Source: Tavoos Online
Siroos Malakooty (guitar soloist and founder of Artists
Without Frontiers in London) and Mahmoud Khoshnam (music critic living in
Germany) have founded a new Internet Radio with the goal of analysis of
different aspects of Persian Music.
1- Articles. At present the
following articles can be found here: "In the Domain of Music," "What is Art?
Who is Artist?" "Introduction of History of Music," "In the Memory of Heshmat
Sanjari" and "Introduction of Music and Musicians under Fascism."
2- News. Prepared by Radio Aida
and also taken from other news sources.
3- Criticism and Analysis. There
is only one article in this section at the moment, but the radio invites
musicians, critics and scholars (no matter what their personal tastes and trends
may be) to participate here.
4- Interviews. At the moment this
section contains three interviews with Behzad Ranjbaran, Reza Vali and Kiawasch
5- Chamber of Men of Art. It
contains two articles "The National Day of Cinema in Behram Beyzaee's Point of
View" and "Mehrangiz Rasampour: M. Pegah" and also a news section. This part
does not exclusively deal with music.
According to Siroos Malakooty and Mahmoud Khoshnam: "Radio
Aida wishes to fill the present gap in relation to Persian music and aspires to
introduce avant garde music particularly in relation to young people. It will
open its main window to Persian Music and will passionately broadcast the works
by pioneer Persian (Iranian) musicians. No doubt that it will not limit itself
to this, but will also try to analyze and criticize the music broadcasted. In
addition, it will not deal only with Persian Music, but will cover the world
music, as Persia is a part of the world and even if this radio wishes, it can
not keep itself outside the world and what is going on in it..."
On the front page of the electronic Radio Aida, there is a
link that if you click on it, you can listen to an hour music accompanied with
related introductory, analytical discussions and critic.
Among other internet radios dedicated to Persian Music we
can refer to Darvish Radio (www.radiodarvish.com) founded by the
efforts of Afshin Toluee which mainly deals with one of the greatest figures of
Persian Music, Darvish Khan.
