NOUR ensemble was founded in 2000 around the project of the ALBA piece. It was the first experience combining Iranian, Kurdish and European Vocal music. • In 2002 the Nour vocal quintet worked on the Occidental polyphonic repertoire from the 15th to the 17th century. The ensemble performed in several ancient churches of the Azerbaijan province in Iran. A documentary has been made in collaboration with ARTE TV Channel about this musical voyage.
