Djmachid Chemirani learnt to play the classical Persian drum, the Zarb, in Iran with the great zarb master, Hossein Teherani, whose revolutionary work changed the zarb from an accompaniment to a solo instrument. When Djamchid decided to leave Iran and move to France, he was already one of the only two living zarb masters in the world. Djamchid''s most promising and inspiring pupils were none other than his two sons, Keyvan and Bijan. This new generation would broaden their scope to include other Middle-Eastern frame drums such as the Daf, Bandir and Udu. The warm voice of Maryam Chemirani, the daughter and sister, generously accompany the trio of percussions with Persian poetry texts.
