Sima Bina Concert in Capelle Aan De Ijssel
Master Sima Bina, is notable Persian classical musician is an Iranian composer, researcher painter and teacher, described by Radio WDR Germany as the „grand lady of iranian folk music“, a leading Iranian classical singer and songwriter. A lifetime of dedicated work on Persian folk music has made Master Sima Bina a legendary character in the history of Iranian music
Since 1993 she has accepted invitations to perform her music worldwide in prestigious festivals and organized concerts.

Her main focus is Iranian folk and classic music. Master Bina has been able to gather and revive a collection of almost forgotten Iranian folk songs and melodies. A captivating vocalist, Master Sima Bina is one of the leading exponents of the traditional music of Iran. For decades she has done extensive research on Persian folk songs, collecting, recording, writing and re-interpreting popular regional music. Her works cover the whole spectrum of Iranian folk music including Mazandarani music, Kurdish music, Turkmen music, Baloch music, Lor music, Shirazi Music, Afghan Music, Bakhtiari Music, north and South Khorasan.

While pursuing Iranian folksongs, Master Sima Bina often came across a variety of ethnic lullabies which she added to her collected works. This collection finally led to her book, Iranian Lullabies in 2009. In this book, Master Sima Bina not only shares her findings, her perception, the scores and visual expression of the selected lullabies with mothers, she also presents forty original Iranian lullabies in four CDs in which her vocal is sometimes blended with the singing of the mothers who had song the lullabies to her in different parts of Iran.

The worldwide recognition her music receives today is the materialization of over forty years of her devotion to Iranian music

„Master SIMA BINA`S music feeds my soul."
(The Gilded Serpent)

"...she has gained a unique position in the history of persian music."
