Reza Ghassemi (b.1950) founded Ensemble Moshtaq in 1988 in Paris, and gave regular concerts until 1995, including with some of the best-known Persian musicians in the West. After two decades concentrating on literature, Ghassemi returns with a bit of a rethinking of the ensemble format.
Sepideh Raissadat studied with Parissa, and then Parviz Meshkatian & Mohammad Reza Lotfi — all musicians featured already on this site.
