Iranian Cultural Association (ICA-UIUC) is proud to announce that on September 9th, we are having an amazing concert with the one and only MOHSEN NAMJOO. Let’s prepare to welcome him to our lovely community by spreading the word and getting our tickets!

Mohsen Namjoo is an Iranian artist, songwriter, singer, music scholar and setar (traditional Persian lute) player based in California. Born in 1976 in Torbat-e Jam, Iran, Namjoo began his musical training at the age of twelve. In 1994 Namjoo began to study Theater and Music at the University of Tehran. Namjoo also studied Iranian folk music. His unique music style resembles a patchwork of Persian classical poetry of Hafez, Rumi or Saadi with western music, namely rock, blues, and jazz.

Hailed as “the Bob Dylan of Iran” by the New York Times, Mohsen Namjoo is a visionary artist who speaks for and touches the souls of today’s youth. Seamlessly blending the classical with the modern, the ancient with the current, Mohsen Namjoo is a true musical maverick.
