The musical culture of the vast land of Iran is quite varied and fits into two major types of formal or Dastgah, and the second type, the music of different regions or folkloric music.

Dastgah music, much like Persian literature, is a vocal reflection of the Iranian culture and is considered a mutual language for all Iranians. Folkloric music, on the other hand, is a narrative from different ancient Iranian folks and encompasses the vocal and auditory parts of popular culture.
