From the heart

“Ahooyeh Mahe Nohom”: Hamed Nikpay, music by Ramin Behna, Lyrics by Amir Khosro Dehlavi

Born in Iran in 1977, Hamed Nikpay learned to sing at the age of seven, encouraged by his mother who loved Persian music and poetry. At nine, he studied Tar & Setar, under the tutorship of some of the masters of classical Persian music such as Hooshang Zareef, Zeydolah Tolouee, Attaolah Jangook, Farokh Mazharee, and Daryoush Pirniakan. By the time he was twenty; he could play five instruments expertly, adding Tanboor, Oud and Daf to his existing repertoire. His interest in classical Persian music coupled with his passion to write his own music, motivated him to learn fundamentals of music composition from such music Masters as Vartan Sahakian, and Farhad Fakhredeanee. He received top honors for improvisation for Setar and vocal in the All Iranian Students Music Festival held in Tehran in 2002…
Since his arrival in U.S., Hamed has performed in numerous concerts before enthusiastic audiences throughout the U.S. His mesmerizing voice has earned him the reputation of being “One of Iran’s Best Young Vocalists” among both the American and the Iranian audiences [See 2006 CD “Solo Paasage“]. He currently resides in Palo Alto, northern California, where he teaches, writes and records music >>>
