Songs of Norouz, a beautiful collection of original songs, takes children on a delightful journey to discover Norouz, the Iranian New Year. This beloved holiday that originated in Persia over 3000 years ago marks the first day of spring and is known for its celebrations and new beginnings.
Composed by the talented musician, educator and vocalist Hani Niroo, Songs of Norouz is the second music album produced and published by Pardis for Children, Inc. Similar to Songs of Pardis, this album is a musical exploration of the Persian language and Iranian culture.
We hope that through music, children are inspired to embrace the beautiful culture and celebrations of Iran while discovering its joyous melodies, sounds, and rhythms!
