Ghavali Najmoddin


Javad Tabesh/ Assef Habibi


Najmoddin was formed recently by a number of Afghan musicians. The formation of this ensemble is based on the professional musical proficiency of its members who are all exceptional in their work. Master Javad Tabesh is one of the students of master Altaf Hossein, a famous international ghaval, and master Assef Habibi, is known as the “Nightingale of Herat”. Based on an innovative approach to fusion music, the texts of the ritual poetry of the contemporary Iranian poets are incorporated with ragas and Harati songs so as to create a kind of spiritual music, while the promotion of the contemporary Persian ritual language and literature has also been considered by the group.
