Album Notes
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 (read more on Norouz and its traditions and festivities inside the CD). 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. 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!

Norouz, or “New Day,” celebrates the first day of Spring and the first day of the new year.  Norouz festivities begin with Chaharshanbeh Suri, a purification rite which is celebrated on the last Tuesday before the New Year. Friends and families gather, create bonfires, and jump over the flames singing “May my paleness by yours and your red glow be mine.”
Iranians ring in the new year at the moment of the equinox, around the Sofreh Haftseen, with family and friends. The Haftseen (the “seven S’s”) represent the main elements of the Sofreh that is set for Norouz in every home; each element symbolizes what we wish for our family and friends in the new year.
The next twelve days are filled with visits between family and friends. As a sign of respect, younger family members begin with visiting their oldest relatives first. On the 13th day, Iranians end the Norouz holiday by celebrating Sizdah Bedar. Family and friends spend the day picnicking outdoors. The younger members of the family make a wish on the sprouts (sabzeh) from the Haftseen, which are then thrown into a river for the wish to come true.
