This unique repertoire was possible through many weeks of research spent living with the tribes, in ancient cities, and finding old musicians and dancers who would share their traditions. Robert and Jacqueline de Warren founded the National Folklore Museum where the fruits of all his research were placed and catalogued. With the advent of Khomeini this material has been lost, save for samples brought back by de Warren and pirate copies of his TV programs made in Teheran for NIRTV now used by Iranians in the USA.  

Robert de Warren is preparing records of his research and a book on his eleven years in Iran.
