Today (September 7) marks the demise anniversary of Farhang Sharif who was one of the skillful Tar players in Iran.
Born in the northern part of Iran on March 24, 1931, the artist was brought up by a music lover family.
It is interesting to know that he started participating in the art class at the age of four.
He was influenced by celebrated musicians, namely Neidavoud and Abolhossein Shahbazi.
He was only 12 when he played on his own in a live radio program that was a valuable experience.
One of the most impressive works of Sharif is called the Peyvand-e Mehr album that is accompanied by the fascinating voice of maestro Mohammad Reza Shajarian.
Having created numerous works, he attracted the attention of the audience in foreign countries and held various countries overseas.
The artist who had created the important work ‘Bazm-e Ashegan’ could receive grade 1 in arts that is equivalent to a doctorate degree.
