With Spain in his hands and Iran in his heart, Shahab creates his musical fusion in the heart of Europe, on the crossroads of world culture.
Shahab Tolouie is an Iranian composer, fusionist, guitarist and singer. Known as the pioneer of an exciting exploration smelting the powerful musical traditions of Iran and Spain in the crucible of his own expression of a new Persian and Flamenco fusion. This alloy casts him within the wider category he calls Ethno-flamenco.
The Trio of Shahab Tolouie, Gavrilo Alexic, Petr Hadr creates a dynamic and technically sophisticated, yet mystical style envisioned as a trip from Persian lands and across the Middle East, through Mediterranean shores to the Iberian Peninsula.
An inseparable part of their performance which creates their peculiar sound, is the one-of-a-kind FuseTar "Lucifer". This three-necked instrument represents the culmination of experiments in search of a mode of expression of their peculiar musical concept. The fusion of Persian Setar, Flamenco guitar, and fretless guitar while incorporating such cutting-edge technologies as True Temperament frets, opens greater horizons for creativity in a borderless musical world...
