Golnar Shahyar & Mahan Mirarab are two enigmatic creative souls and talented musicians from Iran, who have definitely tried to break conventional frameworks and spread their musical wings by creating a new sound and musical expression of their own. An expression influenced but not limited to Persian music, American Jazz, Latin and Afro Cuban polyrhythms. They have been collaborating for years and have released two successful CDs under different projects. For this trio, Golnar & Mahan, they have joined forces with the versatile Austrian percussionist Amir Wahba.Their new CD, Derakht (meaning tree in Persian), is going to be released by the end of November 2017 featuring renowned musicians such as Erkan Ogur (Turkish guitar master), Alain Perez (bassist of Paco de Lucia).

Multi-instrumental, multi-lingual and multi-cultural, Golnar & Mahan is the definition of a real cosmopolitan band. They performed various concerts internationally in many renowned venues, such as Berliner Philharmonie, Konzerthaus Wien etc., and have been nominated three times for the Austrian World Music Awards.
