Tehran Mourning

This is a musical collage of the footages I captured in Tehran Grand Bazaar on the “Tasu’a” and “Ashura” days. These are the two particular days on which the commemoration rituals of Mourning of Muharram are at their highest peak every year, mostly in countries with majority of Shia population. I chose one of the recitations of a well-known Iraqi eulogists Basim al-Karbalaei.
