An Iranian kemancheh player and drummer, Kaveh grew up listening to his parents playing Persian classical music. His mother taught him music when he was 9 and he started to play kemancheh when he was 11. He started to perform professionally at concerts and festivals in Iran with various music ensembles when he
was 14.
He studied under Saeed Farajpoori,Ahmad Mirhashemi, and Ostad Majid Kiani. He joined the music ensemble Center For Preservation And Research of Iranian Music.
As a drummer he has worked with several groups in Iran. He holds a bachelor degree in computer engineering and studies the drums at The Collective School of Music.
Traditional Iranian Music is the indigenous music of Iran. This music has an old and ancient heritage which had been handed down from memories to memories, from heart to heart in an oral manner. This music is based on improvising, in which the musician plays music parts based on the current atmosphere and mood.

The first concept to understand is the construction of the music in each performance and the concept of “Gousheh”. Each mode known as “Dastgah” or “Avaz” with distinct
musical intervals consists of smaller segments called the “Gousheh”. Each Gousheh or melodic unit is characterized by a particular organization of thought and formal beauty
and distinct structure. Some of the Goushehs contain both an introductory known as
“Daramad” and also an ascending conclusion piece known as “Foroud” and some of them have one and some don’t have any of these parts. What is interesting is that these Goushehs are very distinct in their nature and inner sense.
