Hossein Behroozinia

Hossein Behroozinia was born on June 11, 1962 in Tehran, Iran with a heart and soul for music. At the early age of nine he was accepted into Tehran’s Conservatory of Music, where the roots of his love for the Tar, under the supervision of Reza Vohdaney, and the Oud under the guidance of Mansour Nariman, flourished. Soon, eagerness and aptitude awarded him the chance to advance his cultivation by being introduced to the Persian radif of Mirza Abdullah by the famed Mohammad Reza Lotfi.
Behroozinia’s blossoming talent became apparent immediately, so much so, that even as a young man, seventeen, he was asked to instruct at the prestigious Centre of Preservation and Propagation of Music. Opportunities and advancements promptly ensued and he humbly accepted the position of Director of Music Production, followed by Director of Music Education, which turned into Chairman of the Board. Despite a demanding schedule, Behroozinia offered to teach the ancient lute at Tehran’s Conservatory to enthusiastic apprentices.
He has traveled throughout Europe, Asia, and North America performing numerous sold out concerts before mesmerized audience with various prominent music ensembles including Aref and Mowlana. Since 1992, Behroozinia exclusively lends his talents, as one of its leading members, to the gifted Dastan Ensemble.
