Lol sorry for straying off the topic, but what kind of music is that? It's not sharqi or chobi, but it's very common in Iraq (like these are) and I hear it playing at late night wedding music (before gubare). Does it have a name?

The music has a gulfie touch and a bandari (southern iranian) touch, can't make up my mind about which one dominates - they do sound the same sometimes.

Does it have a name though? I like the beat.

Iraqi songs tend to use that style of music - "Lel Ya Lel" for instance (forgot who sings it).
