Born July 13th, 1954
Tehran, IranSinger, Songwriter and Producer Faramarz Aslani is admittedly a rare phenomenon in the Iranian modern music. He writes his own lyrics & music, and he sings them accompanied by his stylish guitar playing.
He is a graduate of London University’s College of Journalism and has written for several Persian and English publications, since his graduation in the early seventies.
Upon returning to his native country, he worked for one of two English dailies, “Tehran Journal” until he was spotted by the President of CBS, in Tehran.
His first album, “Occupation of The Heart”, recorded for CBS in 1977, has remained on the best sellers chart since it’s debut.
He also recorded a second album, “Hafez, a Memorandum”, for the same company. In this album he wrote music on eight poems of Hafez, Iran’s most famous poet and mystic.
The songs are quite diverse, both in style and content. This is what makes Faramarz Aslani distinct.
THE MAN HAS STYLE….
In 2010, Faramarz released his first album since 1999 titled “The Third Line” (Khatte Sevvom) , in his first collaboration with independent record label Bamahang Productions.
