History of Music in my Life

I have been interested in music sicne my childhood, as my father was player of Tonbak (principle percussion instrument of Persian music) and Darbuka (goblet drum). He taught me primary palying skills for these instruments and I got familiar with them after a while. During primary and high school, I was always invited to play in lots of official ceremonies held for different situations.

In 2000, I chose Drum as my professional music insturment and learned to play it academically under supervision of Mr. Eynollah Keyvan-Shokooh who is one of the oldest well-known drumers in Iran. Since 2006, I learned professional percussion playing under supervision of Mr. Homayoon Nasiri (Iranian Famous Meinl Artist) for duration of 4 year.

In 2010, I started my professional career alongside famous and successful musicians and vocalists such as Babak Radmanesh and at the same time worked with other bands like Saeid Poursaeid, Mehdi Modarres, and Darkoob.

I had also been teaching percussion insturments in Darkoob Music Academy but due to numbers of performance and concentration on participating in live concerts, I was unable to teach continuosly. At that time, I was working with singers like Reza Sadeghi and Roozbeh Nematolahi.

Since 2016, I have been participating in more than 300 public live domestic and international concerts for “Hamed Homayoun” Band (cooperation continues) under Taraneh Sharghi company. It was the experince of playing on over 250 concerts in 8 months.
