SIAVASH GHOMAYSHI

Saturday, September 23 – 8:30p


Siavash Ghomayshi is an Iranian musician, singer and song writer. Siavash studied music in London where he received his Master’s degree from Royal Society of Arts. He left Iran after 1978 and now lives in Los Angeles.

He started his career as a composer when he was just 12. Siavash holds a Master’s degree in classical jazz from Royal Society of Arts in London, England, where he majored in pop music. He worked with some popular bands in England such as the Avengers and the Insects as lead guitarist and lead singer. When he returned to Iran at the age of 25, he started his career mainly as a composer. Ghomayshi has created numerous melodies and lyrics for numerous famous Persian artists. Ghomayshi wrote his first song, “Ghayeghran” for Zia when he was only13. Although initially considered a composer, in the latter years (1972) he released his first single “Farangis” and has since continued his work as a singer, composer, arranger, and lyricist. He left Iran at the age of 33 to pursue his career and has been residing in the United States since 1978. Ghomayshi’s first album, “Khaab-e-Baroon” (“Dreaming of the Rain”) was released globally in 1980.

In recent years Siavash Ghomayshi has explored electronic music by introducing new elements into his music and the whole Iranian pop music. He is known as the father of trance music in Iran. Among the 17 albums Ghomayshi has recorded and released to date, “Ragbaar”, “Rooz-haye Bi-Khatereh” (“Days with No Memories”), “Bi Sarzamin-tar az Baad” (“More Homeless Than The Wind”), “Taak” (“The Vine”), and last but certainly not the least “Yadegari” (“Memento”) have been among his most successful. Siavash is extremely popular among young generation of Iranians, and in recent years many other singers have attempted to follow Siavash’s style.

Although his albums may be considered largely non-political, he expresses a longing for his home country. Ghomayshi has also had significant involvement in albums released by various Persian singers with their songs and albums, “The Story of Yours, The Story of Mine”, “Setarehaye Sorbi”, “Shab-e-Niloufari”, which have received great reviews. Ghomayshi’s music is considered as Persian-language pop/rock, in contrast to the vocal styling most often associated with adult contemporary singers.
