back in Australia to perform in their August tour.
Maestro Majid Derakhshani and Maestro Mohammadreza Shajariyan first
visited Australia with Shahnaz Ensemble in 2009. He is presently
active and has played a considerable role in introducing and shaping
young talented musicians to the music community in Iran. He is a known
figure for his work in leading and introducing female musicians and
singers, providing them with an opportunity to share their talent with
other members of the community, something that they are not allowed to
showcase publicly in their home country.
Maestro Majid Derakhshani lived in Germany for 20 years after the 1978
revolution in Iran. He then returned to Iran in 1998. After his return
to Iran he produced an album with Maestro Mohammadreza Shajariyan (Dar
Khial), which reached the highest sales in the Iranian music market

years for his work with solo female singers and introducing them to
the music industry. Maestro Majid Derakhshani is still under
restrictions in Iran and cannot have public performances until further
notice. He uses social media and YouTube to talk and stay in touch
with his fans around the globe.
After he was banned from leaving Iran, media around the world
criticised the Iranian Government for their decision.
