Any Persian Music Experts? Need Help


The #1 video of 2019 on my Farid El Atrache YouTube channel (FaridHQ.com) is a compilation I made of Farid melodies sung by recording artists around the world in 10 different languages. These are: Russian, Hebrew, Turkish, Spanish, French, Hindi, English, Nubian, Malay, Arabic (indonesia).

I have good reason to believe there are Farid songs sung in Farsi as well. Especially this Farid song, Manheremsh El Omr: https://youtu.be/wOFN9RgtPf0
Persian music experts, does this melody ring a bell? I need the name of the song in Farsi in order to find it online. Thanks...

Probably a long shot, but worth a try.

This song doesn't sound familiar at all. Assuming there is a Farsi version out there, even the style and rhythms used, and the rhythm changes are completely un-persian.

I'm not an expert on the real oldies of popular music like Banan and Marzieh. The only tune I know that is bint Al shalibiyah which Pouran did called shaneh. It's still possible this exists somewhere.

Thanks Navid. The song would probably be from the mid 60s, because Farid himself named Iran in an interview in 1967 as one one of the countries that have recorded his songs. The reason I am guessing it could be that song, is because I showed that song a long time ago to a singer who sang Farsi, and she was positive the intro music is exactly like a Farsi song that she knew.

Turkey actually leads the world in using Farid's compositions. I have found 8 Turkish songs based on Farid's melodies, some of them hugely famous sung by famous stars. You see tons of covers of these songs, sometimes even mountain villagers whistling them, millions and millions of views, they have no idea these are Farid compositions.

If you want to hear a more traditional "takht"-type recording of a Hebrew song based on Farid's "Me Alli WeOltelu,"check out this version of "Mul Eli V'Gadlu" by Yehezkel Tzion. This is a Jewish religious song, called a "pizmon," which borrows the melody, but has (of course) an unrelated Hebrew text. The singer is of Iraqi ancestry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXEa7IGEZGk

Thanks for sharing John, very nice, true to the original. I hadn't heard this one before. I have heard a lot of Farid songs in Hebrew though. The first time I heard a Farid song in Hebrew, it was when I met a young oud player in Burlingame, he showed me his cd with a real nice Hebrew version of Ahbabina Ya Ain... Lol, is that recording posted online?

Great, loved it, and the dancing made it even better. I'm glad that is posted. Check out the crazy dancing in the original, way back in 1947. https://vimeo.com/325578555
