Walt Disney Concert Hall
Los Angeles, CA
Founded in 2005 by Saied Jafar-zadeh also known as Homay, The Mastan Ensemble has become one of the prominent ‘traditional’ Persian music – ensembles from Iran. Only in his 20’s, Homay is part of a very special group of Musicians who writes his own lyrics, composes, sings, produces and mixes his music in Iran. His ensemble consists of eight highly proficient Iranian musicians.
These young spiritual and talented Artists transmit their message of truth and unity through novel lyrics and music. They achieve this by refreshing the traditional and folkloric music and introducing a groundbreaking interpretation of classical Persian music and poetry.
Following the paths of the greatest Sufi masters Rumi and Hafez, The Mastan Group encourages its audiences to live consciously. They share the universal idea of striving for a creative life by flourishing love and peace from within.
Rhythmic, uplifting and mesmerizing, The Mastan Ensemble plays traditional Persian music in a way that has never been heard before.
