Saba Alizadeh30M records - Saba Akizadeh with Kamanche

Saba Alizadeh is an Iranian composer, musician and reputated virtuoso of the Kamancheh (Iranian spike fiddle).

On his debut album “Scattered Memories” from 2019, the 37-year-old Saba Alizadeh mixes his instrumental virtuosity with spherical electronics, samples of Persian musical instruments and field recordings from his hometown Tehran.

Born in Tehran in 1983 to world-renowned composer and performer Hossein Alizadeh, Saba studied the Iranian Kamancheh¬† with Saeed Farajpoury and Keyhan Kalhor, as well as photography and later experimental sound art with Mark Trayle at the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles. Influenced by the conceptual approaches taught there, Saba Alizadeh’s music is based on Iranian traditions and scales, only to deconstruct and abstract them in the next step.
