We know Moein Sajadi as a different singer in the pop genre in Iran. Please tell us about the differences between your and his works.
The style of my music is a mixture of different music that ultimately leads to pop, because in fact I have brought a different style of work and something which is considered as my signature, especially in my last piece called “Divooneha”, as well as a number of my music albums. I have shown a deep music universe and house rhythms which somehow are considered as Moein Sajadi’s signature. It cannot be called as Iranian pop. A Pap, which is called as Iranian pop, which combines original Iranian music with Western music. What I use is not necessarily original Iranian music, but in my melodies and compositions and even my adjustments, I occasionally bring genuine Iranian music and, in general, I work with world pop music and only my words are Persian. With Persian words and Persian culture, I prefer to put the Eastern culture and color in my melodies to combine them with the Western culture and colors and this combination of East and West seems to be very beautiful. I put Eastern language and melodies, in the format of Western settings. I think this initiative would bring about a different and pleasant color to music.

We know that you also live in Athens. Do you plan to collaborate with Greek singers and hold a concert in Greece?
It cannot be said that I live in Athens… I spent my childhood in Athens at the age of seven, but then I continued my life in many countries, including Greece and Spain. I have also lived in Tehran and Kish Island in Iran. I believe that the whole life is a kind of trip and I cannot say where my permanent location is. I usually come and go to Greece. In any case, I try to travel wherever I feel good there. I try to be fruitful for myself and for the other people. I do not know much about Greek singers, but I am familiar with their voices. Maybe I do not know their names, but I know more about composers, from Vangelis to Yanni, Hadjidakis and Theodorakis and many Hollywood musicians and those who composed soundtracks, because my interest and work space are about non-vocal music. I believe that non-vocal music contains a philosophy which is absent in vocal music. I think that words would be restricted in such music, while the essence of music is unlimited. It can take you far beyond the earth, and preferably, if I use a word in my projects, I try to employ a variety of ways that indicate what I feel. It could get you closer to it and eventually you can communicate with it.

Given that you are a graduate of Master of Science in Sociology and Philosophy and you know that Greece and Iran enjoy ancient-old relations, cultural and artistic background; can we still see similarities between the two countries? In the artistic context of our subject, music?
The history of Iran is clear to everyone. Most people think the history of Iran dates back to the era of Cyrus II of Persia, commonly known as Cyrus the Great, while the history of this civilized country dates back to the time before of Cyrus the Great. Since Greece also enjoys an ancient-old philosophy, this country is also known as an Eastern country in Europe. The two countries’ cultures and types of behaviors have many similarities and if we consider them behaviorally, we can consider the hospitality and intimate behaviors of the two countries in terms of the similarity of their culture. The two nations also enjoy many similarities in terms of music. The Iran-Greece music themes are also close to each other and the history of music in these two nations has been very impressive. The two countries’ music has been inspired by each other. This is my duty and other people like me to continue these musical relations in a modern arena. I am very interested in being able to do this, both in Greece and the whole world. I do not consider boundary to any country and I try not to confine the limited world in which we have entered and I do not consider myself to a specific territory. If we have to consider the whole world as interconnected, that is, as much as possible and find out how much we can subscribe. We can get closer to each other. We will definitely get closer to perfection and now we will be better off.
 

We would like to know more about you. How did you enter music?
I explained about my sphere of my works in the beginning of the conversation. I also want to underline that I am seeking to have my own signature in my works and I try to present my works in a unique manner with whistling and having my unique sounds. I also have to say that I started music at the age of nine and I actually worked as a music professional 12 years before I performed at Milad Tower in Tehran at the age of 21, which was my first professional performance. Before that I did not allow myself to introduce myself to public as a professional artist until two years after my performance at Milad Tower, I started two albums and become familiar with a group of talents artists via social networks. I tried to find talented people, although I myself had not yet become famous. Now I am glad that all of my choices are among the best people in the fields of music in Iran and enjoy a well-respected place in that country. From the age of nine, I started playing music with piano and keyboard instruments and then I started singing along with playing music. I was interested in composing from the very beginning and I tried to do my own work and I was not looking for what others were doing. And I always thought from those ages that I had to do something to create a new streaming in the field of music and this was done somehow with the friends I started playing in the music behind the scenes and as I said, they are all in good position now. Although I myself did not want to become very famous because we are not currently in a good music streaming in Iran. At the current situation, there are great composers and music editors in Iran and they are performing and growing well. The number of singers also has been skyrocketed and such thing has made me not to enter market as a new singer.

When are your new projects going to be released in order to be able to talk about them?
I'm trying to release my new works within the next two months. At present I am dealing with some hardships regarding the current situation in Iran. I also have been thinking of new works which are in the field of deep house music, like the works of Moein Sajadi.

Do you consider them as Iranian pop or international pop?
As I said, I prefer international pop, but the language of songs is Persian and it cannot be separated from it and the Persian language has its own oriental theme as well. In case of performing international pop, I use most of the Latin, Spanish, Greek and original Iranian music in my works.

Would you like to collaborate with other singers?
I have not thought about that yet. I have never set a plan to work with other artists. I have always accomplished my works. But in order to answer your question, I liked working with Enrique. For the time being, I'm trying to do more important things and collaboration would be happening in its own time.

Do you have a new idea for the future of your musical work or possible redirecting?
My new idea is streaming that should be created in music. Streams that I tried to do somehow, but that is not enough. I would try to do something in the music which is right. Because music can be a kind of meditation and, if it has done correctly, can have a positive effect on all the physical and psychological senses of the human body and it will improve the state of mind, and if this is true, it is certainly a great mission and I would love to do the great mission and if it is a happy and rhythmic music, it would really rejoice at the depths of human existence, not the bottom line of this science and the tendency to have a level and has a fleeting joy that can even hurt its consequences in the future. I try to work on the principles and to follow more scientifically and precisely along with my feelings and I think this is my mission in my work.
