Tombak Music Album by Hossein Tehrani
Listening to original and traditional Iranian songs can fascinate the heart of any listener. The songs of this album are sang by Hossein Tehrani.
Hossein Tehrāni (1912 – February 26, 1974) was an Iranian musician and tonbak player. He is regarded as an innovator, expanding the modern tonbak into an instrument that can be played solo, in addition to its earlier role as an accompaniment instrument. Tehrani added to the instrument’s possibilities with added “beating methods” and played his instrument with different “sonorities.” He was born in Tehran, Iran. At an early age he was going to Zurkhaneh (an Iranian gymnasium) and was impressed by the big clay vase covered on open bottom with skin called Zarb- Zurkhaneh. At age if 13 Hossein found a similar type of Zarb Zurkhaneh in a smaller size which was called tonbakتنبك and began practicing by himself.
