Germany helps Iran digitise thousands of old gramophone records

A Germany university and the Music Museum of Iran have joined forces to digitise 4000 old gramophone records of Iranian songs.

The collaboration came about after an Iranian doctoral candidate in ethnomusicology- who saw how the university had helped preserve some old music collections in Egypt- suggested Iran do the same.
