Songs of Norouz

Songs of Pardis helps children learn about the Persian language and Iranian culture through song. Stay tuned for Songs of Pardis II!

Songs of Pardis is a musical exploration of the Persian language and Iranian culture! A beautiful collection of original songs written by our team of educators for bilingual and multilingual children, this colorful album introduces children to a variety of subjects from letters and numbers to animals and different seasons. Children learn about the Persian celebrations such as Norouz and Yalda while also discovering the joys of melodies, sounds and rhythms of Iran! It is a fun album that you can listen to in the car or at home with your family!
Songs of Pardis has come to life in classrooms of Pardis for Children, where our community of children, educators, and parents have shared the joy of singing these tunes together. It is our hope that Songs of Pardis will now inspire other children around the world to embrace the culture and language of Iran, as it has for our own! We hope you and your family enjoy this album!
