Iraqi Music ... Of Land & People
While over the centuries civilizations flourished and died in a long succession along the banks of Tigris and Euphrates, music never lost its important function in the day to day life of Iraqi people.
An age - old heritage of great variety has been accumulated and preserved in the form of folk and religious music. Almost every region along the two rivers kept its own style of country music.
