Background

Pedram Shahlai is a Kurdish-Swedish multi-instrumentalist whose musical career started in Saqez, in the Kurdish parts of Iran. He discovered music at an early age and has since childhood wanted and strived to push musical boundaries. He uses his music as a weapon for pushing those boundaries and to reduce the distance between people. The tone in Pedram Shahlai’s music has its roots in the rich heritage of Kurdish music. However, due to his immense love for music in general his music is influenced by music from all over the world. You can hear touches of tunes from India to Balkan, from Gypsy to Tango and last but not least some occasional jazz harmonies.
