Yarsanism is a heterodox religious current of Sufism established around the 11th century. Its community lives mainly in the Iranian Kurdistan (province of Kermanshah and north of Lorestan). The Kurdish maqam (which differs from the Eastern Arab, Turkish, and Persian forms) is a modal piece for tanbur, a long-necked lute, and voice. Lyrics are taken from sacred poems. Maqams are exclusively performed in religious ceremonies such as the jam, are meant to be heard only by initiates, and have been transmitted from generation to generation by the oral tradition for centuries.
