"All styles from trad to pop..."
I think you are asking a bit much there PFK
Lists of all material don't happen like that
We have a large collection of International traditional material which I'm happy to share with anybody interested - including Iranian/Persian material
The Argo catalogue was once a reliable source for such material - probably no longer easily available, but still obtainable with searching
The Smithsonian/Folkways ethnic output has (I've been told), never been deleted and is still available on request, but I've never really found that as satisfying as Argo. with their detailed and comprehensible notes.
I would highly recommend Jean Jenkins's magnificent 'Music of Islam' on Tangent, for a categoriesed survey of music and singing, to anybody interested in an overview
