Arian 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. His performances with Music Action International include at the ‘End Sexual Violence in Conflict’ Event in London, with musicians from BBC Philharmonic to celebrate BBC Music Day (live on BBC Radio 3) and a collaboration with amazing musician Matthew Herbert in a joint commission by BBC Digital Arts, British Council and Edinburgh International Festival.
