Career[edit]

Shahram Gholami was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1974 and began studying oud and traditional Persian music at the age of 20. Under the tutelage of Mansoor Nariman, Shahram began recording with composers such as Parviz Meshkatian and Ardeshir Kamkar. Shahram was a member of the Iranian National Orchestra for nine years and subsequently played at various festivals such as the 2003 Sufi Music Festival, Amir Khosro, in India, with the Rumi Ensemble,[1] and Oslo’s World Music Festival with the Sarvestan Ensemble in 2006. He collaborated from 2007 until 2008 with the singer Shahram Nazeri. In Europe, Shahram has performed with the Rumi Ensemble, Javid Afsari Rad, Peyman Yazdanian and the Xenia Ensemble, and he performed solo in Paris’ Theatre de la Ville, Abbesses in April 2009. After the show, he met Habib Meftah Bouchehri and decided to create the band Solouk Duo with him.

February 2009 marked the release of his solo album, Tolou-e-Kavir, inspired by nature and ancient Iranian fables. His new album entitled "Helheleh" in Iran and "Yell" for the rest of the world was recently released in 2012 with the collaboration of Habib Meftah Boushehri.
