Haj Ghorban Soleimani was born in 1920 in Aliabad, a small village in the north of Ghuchan in northern Khorasan. Of Turkish origin, he has lived all his life in Aliabad whose inhabitants are in majority Turkish speaking. A musician as well as a farmer, capable of singing in Persian, Turkish, and Kurdish, Soleimani is the perfect example of the bakhshi. He is one of the last great living bards. He learned his art from his father, who, in turn, was taught by his own father. True to tradition, Soleimani has been the teacher of his only son Alireza. The sons of Alireza, in turn, already hold promise despite their youth and follow diligently the teachings of their grandfather and father. He died on the 20th of January 2008 : God bless him : hoo !
