In the previous video, you saw we went to a village called Zargar, an Iranian village. Here we are going to listen to a lullaby that an old woman sings for us.

The origin of the Zargari people is shrouded in mystery, but there are several legends and theories about their ancestry. One of them says that they are descendants of three goldsmith brothers who migrated from Rumelia, a region in the Balkans, to Damascus, and then to Shiraz, during the reign of Nader Shah in the 18th century.

The Zargari people have preserved their distinct identity and traditions for centuries, despite living among Persian and Turkish speakers. They have their own religion, which is Shia Islam, but with some elements of Sufism and animism. They have their own customs, such as celebrating Nowruz (the Persian New Year) and wearing colorful clothes and jewelry. They have their own arts and crafts, such as pottery, carpet weaving, and metalwork.

In this village people speak a language they call Romano and they claim their ancestors were Italian. In the video, an old local woman sang a lullaby and I promised I am going to play the full version of her song. So, here you are with her lullaby. Listen and learn Persian language and beyond.
