Meikhaneh Khamoosh
A prominent vocalist among the young generation of Iranian traditional music, Salar Aghili is known as an instrumental figure to pass on the values of Persian music from masters such as Mohammad Reza Shajarian to the next generation. He started learning music as a child, playing several instruments including tar (lute), setar, santour (dulcimer), tombak (drums) and piano. Passionate about singing and encouraged by music masters, he chose singing as the way of expressing himself. His vocal passion, silky voice and his tendency toward genuine music and great musicians and influence of Sufism in his work, soon opened his way in the hearts of music lovers. The result is sold out performances in Iran, Europe, U.S.A. and Canada.

Saeed Farajpoori : Composer and Kamanche virtuoso
Hossein Behroozinia: Barbat (Oud)
Harir Shariatzadeh: Daf Player
