Shahab Tolouie (Írán)
Born in 1974 in Shahsavar, Iran
Shahab Tolouie's music combines mysticism and deep philosophy of Persian tradition with the passion and drama of flamenco.
As a multi-instrumentalist, besides guitar, he also excels at various traditional Persian instruments - setar, tanbor, delroba, laud, daf, dammam. He is involved mainly in multicultural and artistic musical fusion. It presents a distinctive style in which the West and the East combine: a clear, warm-hearted expression, flamenco with powerful intonation and rich musical elements of Persian tradition. This multicultural style, which is an original contribution to the genre Ethno / World music, is sometimes referred to as Ethno Flamenco or Persian Flamenco fusion - the Persian-Spanish fusion.
He is also an excellent singer. In addition to playing in Arionas and occasional solo performances, he also has his own band Shahab Tolouie Trio
