The SOAS Iranian band was established in 2009 by Peyman Heydarian and follows a cross-cultural, yet authentic approach to Iranian classical music. Each September, new musicians and singers join the band and get to know Iranian music and culture throughout the year. We perform and promote musics of cultures within Iran and beyond the borders, such as Persian, Kurdish, Azeri, Lori, Balouchi, Guilaki and Armenian music. We have monthly concerts and weekly music classes for santur, daf and music theory on Thursdays. You are invited to visit our website to listen to our music and we hope to see you in our concerts of Iranian music and also our multicultural concert series ‘The Voice of the Santur’.
