Persian Folk Songs
In this recording, Minoo Javan sings folk songs from the beautiful shores of the Caspian Sea's Gilan & Mazandaran, from the green peaks of the Kordestan mountains, from the sweeping planes and mountains of Lorestan, from the happy and sweet people of Shiraz, from the brave tribes of Boyer Ahmadi and from the proud slopes of the Alborz mountains. Minoo Javan's voice has found a special place in the hearts of Persians from the far corners of her native land to the great concert halls of Europe and America because of her rare ability to portray her love for Persian culture and her devotion to it's people, poets and artists. Her voice and recordings are heard regularly on the BBC and other broadcasters around the globe. Her early musical career began when she rose to prominence by appearing as the featured performer in more than 300 concerts and becoming a regular feature on radio, where she performed Persian Folk songs, among other repertoire. After coming to America, she studied Music at the University Of Southern California's School of Music, where she was awarded one of it's prestigious opera scholarships. Other recent releases of her recordings include 'All That Jazz, but in Persian' and 'Echoes Of Love.'
