Mystery Disc

Mystery, not in the sense of trying to stump anyone, but being stumped myself. About 20 years ago, a friend of a friend gave me a cassette. The only information on the box was Mehrdad 1990, "Old Song", recorded in Iran and a list of the instruments one would expect on recordings of Persian Classical Music - Tar, Setar, Santur, Daff, Tonbak, Tarbas, Kamancheh, Naye, Oud, Folotcha, Ghazhak and Zarb. This is rather more spirited than other examples of the form which I've heard, the Tar playing in particular. Google searches turn up some artists named Mehrdad, but they don't seem to fit stylistically with what's on offer here.

Hazarding a guess that it is some kind of regional folk music... (Haven't heard it yet.)

I have heard some fairly lively tar playing on recordings by some Iranian Kurdish and Azeri musicians, though.

Its pretty definitely Persian Classical Music, the mystery is the identity of the artist(s).
