Zoroastrian music is a kind of religious music that accompanies religious and traditional rites among the Zoroastrian people.

Prior to the arrival of Islam, Zoroastrians knew choral and solo performance songs. Most of those songs are no longer performed, though there remain Zoroastrian religious songs. Many are derived from the Avesta, or from the Gathas (sayings attributed to Zoroaster). Islamic influence can be seen in the melodies of the Naderi method of prayer recitation and pilgrim's songs. The ancient tambourine music of Kermanshah (in Iran) is similar as well to some kinds of Zoroastrian music [1].

Darbe Mehrs and Zoroastrian fire temples usually possess one to two bells which are intoned at certain times during ceremonies.
