ABOUT THE ARTIST: Bahman Panahi was born in Iran in 1967, the youngest son of a large artistic family. From early on, Panahi came into contact with music, painting, theater, and calligraphy through the work of his brothers. From these arts, he chose music and calligraphy for himself. In his opinion, the former stands for Iranian history, its culture and its civilization, and the latter gives a spontaneous image of the Iranian creativity and its taste. He constant preoccupation is the relation between these two artistic domains.

In parallel, he learned to play the tar and the sitar and deepened his musical knowledge with great masters of Persian classical music like Houshang Zarif, Mohamed Reza Lotfi, and Ataolah Zahed Shirazi.
