Arian Sadr has been enthusiastic about music since childhood, particularly Persian percussion. He started learning Tonbak (Persian goblet drum) and Daf (a circular frame drum) when he was seven . He moved to England to study music and music production in 2003 where he became interested in a variety of styles of music that could influence him to create his own original fusion style. Arian is also a songwriter, composer and producer. He has played as a solo artist as well as cooperating with the other musicians in many concerts and events. His performances include with ‘Music Action International’ at End Sexual Violence in Conflict Event, ExCel project in London, performed with musicians from BBC Philharmonic a special performance to celebrate BBC Music Day (live on BBC Radio 3 in 2015), Manchester Imperial War Museum as Part of Asia Triennial, International Root Orchestra and also collaboration with “Project Jam Sandwich” at Royal Northern College Of Music Manchester, an extraordinary performance at “Tea&Zen 2013″ event at Worldwide IBPS Fo Guang Shan Temple Manchester and many other fantastic organisations in the U.K.
