MUSICIAN AND PRODUCER
These are words critics and music lovers worldwide use to describe the first Iranian Grammy Award-winning composer, producer, and santoor artist, Hamid Saeidi. His compositions fuse classical Persian themes with contemporary, tour de force instrumentation to create truly unique, truly magical experiences.
Trained in the Radiff system of Persian Classical music from age 15, Hamid studied santoor (Persian hammered dulcimer) with famed Master Madjid Kiani. His amazing technique, emotional depth, and innovative improvisations led him to pursue a degree in music from The Iranian Academy of the Arts, where he studied composition under Masters Farhad Fakhredini and Vartan Sahakian. He received international acclaim for performances in Iran, Greece, Ireland, Germany, England, Turkey, Canada, Malaysia, and the United States.
