But for voice your immediate choice will be Iran's legendary Iraj, who is an outstanding example of the musical ornaments that the oriental voice and musical system is capable of producing.

I heard this the first song by Iraj many years ago, but I never knew who it was. It haunted me all those years. Now I have heard it again.
