Biography

Pejman Hadadi

Pejman Hadadi is among the most innovative Iranian percussionists and known for his ability to produce melodic patterns on Tonbak within rhythmic structures as well as creating complex variations on the basic sounds of the instrument. He is the founder of Neyreez World Music Institute in Southern California and a member of two contemporary and acclaimed Persian Classical music ensembles: ZARBANG and DASTAN. He began playing Tombak at the age of ten with master musicians Asadollah Hejazi and Bahman Rajabi.

In 1990, he immigrated to the United States. He brings to Persian rhythm an Indian percussive sensibility that he has studied over the years. One of his most recent endeavors is uncovering the sound of Persian Qavali. He has written a number of Persian Qavali pieces, which he has performed and recorded with ZARBANG and Morshed Mehregan.

Pejman has written a number of compositions for dance, and has been the resident composer and percussionist with Banafsheh Sayyad and NAMAH since 1998. He has recorded and performed with an impressive list of premier musicians including Shahram Nazeri, Hossein Omoumi, Parisa, Ali Akbar Moradi, Ardeshir Kamkar, Shujaat Hossein Khan, Adam Rudolph, Nejati Celik, Halil Karadoumon, and Yair Dalal.
