Mahsa & Marjan Vahdat

Singing is a blessing. A voice that finds its way into the arteries of life, now flowing like a whisper by a baby's cradle, now like a lover's, perhaps, standing against the rays of a future. A blessing, indeed, is singing.

Mahsa Vahdat

Mahsa was born in Tehran in 1973, She started her career in music by taking piano lessons of Minoo Mohebbi from an early age. She continued the piano with Laleh Aghevli. She picked up Persian traditional singing with Pari Maleki and continued singing with Mehdi Fallah and Mohsen Keramati. Vahdat also plays the setar which she studied under Ramin Kakavand and later Masoud Shoari. She entered the Art University in Tehran in 1993 and graduated from the Music Faculty with a BA in Music. In the Art University she has been under the influence of master musicians such as Sharif Lotfi, Ahmad Pejman, Hooshang Zarif, Behnam Vadani, Abdorreza Sajadi, Hushang Kamkar, and Mohammad Reza Darvishi.
