In 1998 Habib entered a 16 year long collaboration with the Shanbezadeh ensemble, and together they were invited to play at several international festivals. In 2001 he was invited to play with the French dance company Montalvo-Hervieu, touring the world yet again. He debuted as a solo artist in 2005 with the album Deyzangeroo, later to be followed by his second album Solouk (Helheleh), a duo with oudist Shahram Gholami.
