A city is not just a complex of artificial limbs. The city, to put it in better words, is composed of different elements formed by citizen’s understanding. In fact, the concept of city-view means the city entity consists of imagination at its construction which cannot see far from objectives. Some men’s mind are shaped by the current moments of the city. Street music is a citizen art and a current action affecting minds and modifying the city view directly without any connection or relation with audiences.
This city art has existed since the early Christian centuries and it began its life in Iran before entering Islam. Therefore, street music is a western and imported art which has had a specific position in Iran’s Islamic, oriental culture. In addition, the important point about this art has been revealed in each era implying the fact that the construction of city, its needs and audiences’ interests were modified. As Iran’s religious celebrations, especially in Tehran, are associated with the melody of music in citizens’ minds, the street music in Tehran is now implemented in two forms of Religious – Historic and modern professional music in the city. In fact, this art has been encountering limitations and restrictions, but the artists of this field have continued their life and helped to make this art professional in the city during the previous decades.
Accordingly, the present study surveys and introduces the street music of contemporary Tehran in its modern shape of today since post revolution period till today.
