Spirits ride the wind of the seas and spread illness into the bodies of human beings. The only cure for this wind carried illness is based on the beliefs of the Zar religion. Zar is synonymous for the wind which carries the illness. Yar is an ancient and tradiotional velief based in the south of Iran. The Zar ceremony can free the body from evil spirits with the assistance of music and song. Those who perform the ceremony are called MamaZar or BabaZar (the mother or father of the wind).
