Mojgan Shajarian and Ensemble
The first part of the program is in Dashti and Abu Atā mode and tune, both of which are derivatives of Shur Dastgāh (mode). Shur is often referred to as the Mother of dastgāhs in the classical music of Iran and has a special place in the hearts of Her people.
The second part is performed in the Navā dastgāh which is one of the main modal systems of classical Iranian music whose configuration of notes is similar to the minor scale in European classical music.
