Yaran (Iran)

Notes of Freedom Festival

We proudly present the group Yaran who will conclude our trilogy of concerts ‘Notes of Freedom’ with the music of Iran. The leader of the group, Mojtaba Yahya, blends traditional Iranian music with his own original compositions. Mojtaba learnt to play the tar and the setar (two Persian lutes) with the masters of these instruments, Ahmad Ebadi et Houshang Zarif.

He has worked with well known singers such as Iraj, Goudarzi, etc, in Iran. But his music has been subjected several times to censorship. His major concert of "Shabe Barani" with Iraj was forbidden and several of his albums such as "Shahede Aflaki" et "Royaye Shab" can no longer be played. The female singer Anjela participated in the second album and it was this collaboration that the authorities used to justify banning their album.

These events convinced them to leave their country to play their music elsewhere. So it was in Belgium that they founded the group "Yaran" with other Iranian musicians in Europe. And for this project, they have added the female singer Helen Yasa.
