Sarv Ensemble to bring the music of Persia to Melbourne

The Sarv Ensemble is heading to Melbourne, offering a rare opportunity to hear authentic Persian classical music.

The ensemble has invited Maestro Majid Derakhshani to lead the performance. Maestro Majid Derakhshani lived in Germany for 20 years after the 1978 revolution in Iran before returning to Iran in 1998.

After his return, he produced the highest selling album on the Iranian charts for over three years – going on to release over 150 albums across the past two decades. 

Comprised of seven internationally renowned musicians from Iran, Canada and Australia, the Sarv Ensemble also features a female vocalist from Iran. In Iran, females are prohibited from performing in front of a unisex audience – with the ensemble breaking with tradition to bring their performance overseas to music lovers of all genders.
