Although, this Opera "Mashti ibad" is really old but time can never wipe out its excellence.
I strongly suggest it to people who are in to music and Azeri language. All Azeri people know at least some parts of this Opera.

"Mashti" or "Mash hadi in Persian" is used for calling people who has gone to "Mashhad مشهد", which is a city in "Khorasan خراسان" a province in Iran and has tomb of "Imam Rezaامام رضا 8" th imam of Shiite inside.
"İbad" or "Ebad عباد in Persian" is the name of the main character of this Opera.

I will also share other movies and musics as soon as possible.

You can find the first Part of Mashti İbad at this link:

Here are a couple of my favorite Azeri songs (after "Reyhan" which is my all-time favorite :D):

Rəşid Behbudov - Lalələr (Tulips)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HH8-xczk0o4
Behbudov was one of the most famous Azeri singers ever. He was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, but moved to Baku, Azerbaijan later in life.

Googoosh - Ayrılıq (Separation)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlJM1En7F4Q
Googoosh is one of the most famous Iranian singers. She mostly sings in Persian, but she is Azeri (from Tehran, though her parents are from Sarab in East Azerbaijan province).

AZERI POETRY: SHAHRIAR

Some info about Shahriar, one of the most famous Azeri poets of Iran who died recently:

wiki wrote:Seyyed Mohammad Hossein Behjat-Tabrizi (Persian: سید محمدحسین بهجت تبریزی)‎ (1906-September 18, 1988), chiefly known by his pen name as Shahriar (or Shahryar / Shahriyar شهریار), was an Iranian poet, writing in Persian and Azerbaijani.

Born in Tabriz, Shahriar came to Tehran in 1921 and continued his studies in the Dar-ol-Fonoun high school and started studying medicine after graduation from Dar-ol-Fonoun in 1924. But he fell in love, left his studies about a year before receiving his M.D. degree, and went to Khorasan. He returned to Tehran in 1935 and started working in the Agricultural Bank of Iran.

Shahriar published his first book of poems in 1929, with prefaces by Mohammad Taghi Bahar, Saeed Nafisi, and Pezhman Bakhtiari. His poems are mainly influenced by Hafez. His most famous poem Heydar-Baabaayaa Salaam, in Azerbaijani, is considered to be among the best modern poems in the language and has been turned into a few plays.

His most famous Azeri work Heydar Babaya Salam, Published in 1954, won the immense affection of the Turkish world.

His day of death is named the "national day of poem" in Iran. A television series about his life was directed by Kamal Tabrizi and aired on IRIB channel 2.

Mohammad Hossein Shahriar, was the first Iranian Azeri to write a significant collection of poetry in the Azerbaijani language. Born in 1906 in Tabriz, he received his elementary education, including the Divan of Hafez, under his father's supervision. Shahriar’s first formal education was at the Motahari (former Mansoor High School) Secondary School in Tabriz. He subsequently studied at the Darolfonun (former higher education school) in Tehran. Although he studied medicine in college, he dropped out just before getting his diploma and went to Khorasan, where he found a job as a notary public and bank clerk. Initially he published his poems under his given name, Behjat, but later chose the name Shahriar.

This passionate poet began by composing tragic poetry. Many of his bittersweet memories are reflected in his books Hazyan-e Del, Heydar Baba, and Mumiyai. Heydar Baba, composed in Azerbaijani and later translated into Persian, was for a long time on the top ten best-seller list in Tehran. Heydar Baba is the name of a mountain where the poet spent his childhood. He also wrote a book of epic poems, Takht-e Jamshid.

He was interested in humanistic issues and in his poem "A letter to Einstein" he criticized the result of his scientific work that was abused as nuclear weapon.

Shahriar’s verse takes diverse forms, including lyrics, quatrains, couplets, odes, and elegies. One of his love poems, Hala Chera, was set to music by Rouhollah Khaleghi. The composition for orchestra and solo voice became one of his most well-known works. One of the major reasons for the success of Shahriar’s work is the sincerity of his words. Since he uses slang and colloquial language in the context of poetry, his poems are understandable and effective for a broad segment of the public.

Shahriar was a talented calligrapher, played the setar very well, and had a keen interest in music. He died in 1988.


Poem: Khan nane, read by Shahriar himself.
