Iconic maverick Iranian musician and composer Mohsen Namjoo returns to Vancouver touring for his latest new recording “Motantan (Grandiloquent) to be fully released in March 2020. Based in United States, Namjoo has been hailed as “the Bob Dylan of Iran” by the New York Times. He is a visionary artist who speaks for the youth in Iran and abroad. Seamlessly blending the Classical Persian setar with electric guitar, and rock and blues vocal techniques with Persian avaz (singing), he fuses the ancient with the current.   Namjoo, joined by his core 4-piece ensemble, always delivers epic live concerts, performing a mix of his new works, as well as well-loved hits from the past.

Snce his arrival to the U.S. in 2011, Namjoo has been touring the world to sold out concerts at prestigious halls such as Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco; Conservatorio Sala Verdi, Milan, Italy;  Disney Hall, Los Angeles and many more.

Mohsen Namjoo will be accompanied by Sean Conly on Bass, Anders Nilsson on Guitar, and Yahya Alkhansa on Drums
