Does anyone know about Iranian music and know what kind of music Iranians usually listen to?

Many people may think that music is not common in Islamic countries.
what is your opinion?

@ghorbanpour,
It's not easy being a musician in Iran.

The rapper Amir Tataloo, one of Iran’s most famous musicians, has been detained in Istanbul after an Interpol request from Tehran authorities.

Turkish police confirmed on Tuesday they detained Tataloo, real name Amirhossein Maghsoudloo, in Istanbul’s Fatih district because of an Interpol red notice flagging him as a wanted person.

On Instagram, Tataloo posted a photograph showing him in handcuffs, and another captioned: “They said the Iranian government wants me.”

An Iranian police spokesperson told the semi-official news agency Mehr that Tataloo had been arrested over drug-related charges. He is accused of “encouraging citizens, especially the youth, to use drugs”, a statement said.

Turkey said Tataloo was initially picked up for a visa violation and a deportation decision has not yet been made.

The underground artist’s music has at times been banned by Iran’s ministry of culture and Islamic guidance on immorality grounds, but he still has a fanbase of millions on social media, where his followers call themselves “Tatalees”.

The tattoo-covered musician has courted controversy for his mercurial politics. He rose to fame by criticising the Iranian government’s human rights record in songs and on social media before shifting to a conservative stance and encouraging fans to vote for hardliners in 2017’s presidential elections.

His best-known single, Nuclear Energy, released ahead of the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, proclaimed Iran’s right to defend itself and was accompanied by a music video shot on a warship in the Persian Gulf, leading to speculation he had been co-opted by the Iranian establishment.

@ghorbanpour,
one of my best online friends is an Iranian percussionists. he often shares wonderful music with us. his father is a master instructor. one of his students has moved to our city and I have taken classes with her. I have studied with a number of Palestinian and other Arabic musicians. It is a wonderful world of music.

Whenever Constantinople performs nearby, I make sure to get a ticket to their show.

@bobsal u1553115,
Always startles me how much the note combos are the same as the ones used in synagogue. I know it's sort of wrong, but I always want to sing along.
the tonality is very sympatico to me.

@ehBeth,
I've always loved the call to prayer.

I hear it in the chants from the Bulgarian chiors, too:





Specially this one:



The interesting thing about that one is the interior cathedral dome is from the Hagia Sofia, a mosque in Istanbul that was the Cathedral of St Sofia 600 or so years ago. One of the largest domes on the planet.

Under strict Islamic law this is the only song they can play on Fridays.
