  • Description

    EMPRESS FARAH DIBA, WIFE OF THE SHAH OF IRAN, ON WEDNESDAY (20 SEPTEMBER) ARRIVED IN SHIRAZ TO TAKE PART IN THE CLOSING CEREMONIES OF THE IRANIAN FESTIVAL OF ARTS. THE EMPRESS WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HER THREE CHILDREN, MRS HOVEIDA, WIFE OF PRIME MINISTER AMIR ABBAS HUVEIDA AND THE MINISTER OF THE COURT, AMIR ASADULLAH ALAM.

    ONE OF THE FINAL EVENTS IN THE FESTIVAL, WHICH INCLUDED BOTH NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL MUSIC, WAS A PROGRAMME OF DRUMMING PERFORMED BY A GROUP OF IRANIAN MUSICIANS.

    THE INSTRUMENT USED IN THE ALL-DRUM ORCHESTRA IS CALLED A "TONBAK".

    IN A RECENT AMENDMENT OF THE IRANIAN CONSTITUTION EMPRESS FARAH, IN THE EVENT OF THE DEATH OF THE SHAH, WILL BECOME REGENT UNTIL SIX-YEAR-OLD CROWN PRINCE REZA IS 20 - PROVIDED SHE DOES NOT MARRY AGAIN. BUT THE AMENDMENT LEFT THE SHAH WITH RESERVE POWER TO APPOINT SOMEONE ELSE REGENT IF HE WISHES.
