Description

Some clay statues found in the Haft Tape and the temple of Choqar Zanbil in the Khuzestan province show a musician whose instrument is very similar to the present day setar. Some images with at least 3500 years history indicate the existence of an instrument called the tanbur in that era. The word “setar” has been used by many Persian poets from centuries ago. It may refer to Setay of Barbad, a famous musician from the Sassanid Era. Also, Farabi an Persian scientist mentions the tanbur in his famous book, Musiqi al-Kabir, written more than a thousand years ago. In this book, Farabi describes the different kinds of the Persian tanbur in detail. These tanburs are very similar to the present setar and show that the present setar is the descendent of the old tanburs. The tanbur which is considered the ancestor of the setar is played by all fingers of the hand. It has been always played in this way from the old times. The setar is the only Persian instrument which is played by the nail. This method of playing the setar does not have a long history. In the paintings of the Chehelsotun Building of Esfahan which is from the Safavid Era, there is an instrument which looks like the setar, but it has six strings. The setar is a string instrument. Since in the past it had three strings, it was called setar (“se” means three and “tar” means string in Persian). Today, the setar has four strings. for more informations click HERE

The setar is a Persian (Iranian) stringed instrument with a small, pear-shaped soundbox and four metal strings. Its name means “three strings.” A fourth drone string was added about 150 years ago by the mystic Moshtagh Ali Shah. The drone string is referred to as the “Sim Moshtagh” (Moshtagh string) by many prominent tar and setar players. This modification gave the delicate instrument a “bigger” sound and more complex tuning possibilities. The resonating box of the setar is attached to a long neck that has twenty-five gut frets. The soundbox is made from mulberry wood, while the neck comes from the walnut tree. The instrument has a melodic range of just over twenty scale degrees. Although it is traditionally played with the right index finger’s nail, in the past three decades, two distinguished master performers, Mohammad-Reza Lotfi and Hossein Alizadeh, have introduced new techniques to give setar playing a whole new life.

Islamic State militants set fire to sulfur stocks at a factory south of Mosul, the U.S. military said Saturday, creating a plume of noxious smoke that has drifted over a base with U.S. troops involved in the Iraqi offensive to retake the city and forcing some to put on gas masks as a precaution.

People in the area affected by the smoke said it was difficult to breathe, burned their eyes and stung their noses and throats when they inhaled it, and burned any exposed wet skin as the cloud intermittently blew over the area depending on winds.
