Summary of the deposit
A collection of audio recordings of Zoroastrian Dari consisting of:
- personal and community narratives, in which Iranian Zoroastrian speakers of Dari recount autobiographical information and well as aspects of the history of their own lives and/or of their village or the Zoroastrian community more broadly
- traditional stories and songs, in which speakers retell stories (and, in a few cases, recite songs) that are traditionally of religious and/or cultural significance
- a small number of additional items which do not fit clearly into either of the above categories, including coversations among several speakers at once, the explanation of a recipe, etc.
The image (above, right) shows two elderly Zoroastrian women visiting outside their house.
