TEHRAN.(Iranart) – Acclaimed tar and setar virtuoso and composer Hossein Alizadeh loves breaking the taboo when it comes to bringing music instruments in the open.
In an interview with ISNA, Alizadeh expressed his views about issues and events regarding music in the country.
Street musicians were the first on the agenda of the interviewer. “I think, it’s good for a city to have them playing, irrespective of their motive and which genre they play…I believe people need to raise their spirits in some form.”
The legal status of buskers, though, is tentative. There have been numerous occasions where their performances were stopped by law enforcement officers or by municipal agents.
