Gosheh-e-Maqam: The smallest identifying part of the original Iranian music series is called Gosheh-e-Maqam, which includes old songs that are sung in different parts of Iran.

Iranian Music Row: A collection of all Iranian songs and corners have been collected in an Iranian book called Iranian Music Row. The row of Iranian music is in fact the encyclopedia of Iranian traditional music.
Ink Reading: This model of reading that the musician starts from one device and enters another device is called ink reading.
Shahed note: The note that has the most use in each instrument and song is called Shahed note.

Judging the Music Festival POM (Persian Original Music) in Tehran
Javad Safaee (Bcoo) also said that a music festival will be held in Tehran on June 20 and he has been selected as the judge.
Finally, Javad Safaee (Bcoo) said that his new album (Mixed 2), which is a mixture of traditional and modern Iranian music, is to be released in the coming years and is currently being made.
The mixed album version one had a lot of views on Iran’s domestic platforms, so that this album was the second most visited album on the Iranian billboard in 2020.
However, it is noteworthy that this album did not get many views on international platforms and did not gain a place, program director of Javad Safaee says that the reason is that people around the world are not familiar with the language of Iranian music, ie Persian.
