ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Iran, Hamed learned to sing at the age of seven, and studied Tar & Setar, under the tutorship of some of the masters of classical Persian music. By the time he was twenty; he could play five instruments expertly, adding Tanboor, Oud and Daf to his existing repertoire. After receiving a B.A. degree in music composition, he began writing his own music and performing in concerts as both a vocalist and instrumentalist, with some of the most highly acclaimed music ensembles before wide audiences in Iran, Europe and Asia. He has recorded two albums, performing as a fusion vocalist, with Rumi and Emad ensembles, singing among many, some of his own songs. He has also recorded as a vocalist, with an ensemble of selective members of Tehran Symphony Orchestra pieces composed and directed by Majid Derakhshani, one of Iran’s greatest contemporary music composers.

Hamed has also written music scores and performed solo instruments in several motion pictures made by some of the most distinguished directors of the Iranian cinema. His most recent work was the hit theme song for the widely broadcasted TV serial “Ahooyeh Mahe Nohom”, composed by Ramin Behna, one of Iran’s best cinematic music composers.

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 American and Iranian audiences alike. He currently resides in Palo Alto, California, where he teaches, writes and records music.

Great and refreshing fusion of Aseel and new Iranian instrumental sounds. I would only suggest for future projects to add more variety as sounds seem to linger from one track to another.

All an all outstanding work - beats the crappy 6/8 stuff we've heard for the last 30 years here in this side of the pond!!

I really enjoyed this CD. What I was really looking for was your voice along with your music! Do you have any other CD's with you singing?

An eclectic array of instrumentals with incredible depth and emotion
This album takes the listener on a seamless journey through various pastures of emotion and experience. These instrumentals can satiate a wide array of musical tastes. Whether one is looking for music to relax to, to enjoy company with, or to explore one's own depth of self, Gozar meets these desires. The artist's expression through tar, setar, tanbur and oud is intimate and personal, and beautifully communicates the musician's experience at the cross roads of tradition and a new world.

Highly Recommended.
This album is absolutely exquisite. It is so beautiful, so moving, that I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.This is a recording one can listen to repeatedly, each time discovering new nuances and patterns missed before.
For me, this music--hauntingly beautiful, spiritual, and luminous in its complexity--is of the highest order of artistry.

From place to place
I have quite specific music tastes of traditional instruments,but I love this cd.The album is suffused with deep emotional intensity captured in 23 compositions of masterful simplicity.Besides being a remarkable musician,he can also bring an outstanding sound from his setar and tanboor.it reminds me of my nostalgia for the good old days that I had in Iran.It really makes me feel the pain of separation or heartbreak and he describes loneliness with mellow and intriguing melodies.

I loved the cd,each track took me to a different part of my beloved Iran,a true passage; I could close my eyes and imagine myself flying over the beautiful cities of Iran:" The sound and the view were breathtaking!". I had a great journey with Gozar.
I would highly recommend it to true music lovers.
