Mohsen Namjoo

Tirgan Festival is proud to present world-renowned Iranian singer, songwriter and composer Mohsen Namjoo​ and his band to perform in Toronto. 

Mohsen Namjoo is a frontliner in bridging classical Persian music with Western styles. His unique music style resembles a patchwork of Iranian blues, rock, and folk. Namjoo’s lyrics are synchronously blurred between the venerated Hafez and Rumi poems and his own authentic poetry. 

Considered a phenomenon within Iranian contemporary culture, Mohsen Namjoo has pioneered a readaptation of Persian music. He uses zany words to liberate and infuse our musical imagination with irony and sarcasm in an emancipated form of singing. Even across the language barrier — his songs are in Persian — Namjoo is unequivocally committed to a modern departure from conventional forms of Iranian music. His chameleonic voice echos ordinary chatter in the bazaar in a melancholic yet magical environment to showcase the incongruity and unity of Iranian culture today. 

Tirgan Festival proudly invites you to a live premiere performance of Mohsen Namjoo’s favorite classics and new arrangements in Tirgan Festival 2019.
