BAHRAMJI

about

Bahram was born in 1952 in the Kurdish city of Kermanshah in Persia. As a child he heard the ancient Sufi melodies, which are the inspiration for his music today.

 

At the age of 13 he learned to play the Santoor and started to perform at several places in his hometown.

 

Through playing whirling music for wanderers from different cultures, his style has changed from the traditional approach to his own. He melts old songs into a new form, creating a meditative sphere to uplift body and soul.

 

Bahram’s instrument is the Persian Santoor, a traditional string instrument, which is said to create the sound of emptiness. Besides the Santoor, he started to play the Persian Settar and the Ney; a Persian bamboo flute.

 

 

After living and performing in India for a long period, he discovered the island of Ibiza in Spain in 2003.

 

His music is a special combination between the ancient and traditional, connecting with the modern and technical Most of the lyrics of his songs are based on Rumi’s and other mystical poetry, the tracks carry an urban vibe rooted in meditation.

 

Fusion is the word to describe this music, but actually a new word needs to be found, because he has taken it to a whole new level. It has the energy to carry a power flow. The length of the songs allows a deep, slow driving bass line to hypnotize you as melodic Santoor and other instruments carry you to other places. Yet this is not meditation music, it has incredible energy.
