Thread Name: Persians
Subject: RE: Persians
Kurdish and Persian music are about as unrelated as Highland pipe marches and Yorkshire music hall songs. There are subgenres between each of them but they don't come within miles of overlapping. I can play a few Persian songs but Kurdish music is a totally different world.

There is an excellent shop for Iranian cultural stuff in Paris, www.utopiran.com - near the Porte de Clignancourt. I expect to drop in again next week. I think the people who run it are Zoroastrians but they don't push any obvious ideological line. Can't think of anything comparable in the UK, though we have enough resident Iranians and Iranophiles to make it viable.
