About

Tarolinbak is an instrumental ensemble featuring the unconventional combination of tar, violin and tonbak/daf at the crossroads of modal music from Iran and beyond. Led by a masterful trio of musicians Shahin Fayaz (tar), Bijan Sepanji (violin) and Naghmeh Farahmand (tonbak/daf), this dynamic ensemble made its debut recording at the beginning of the pandemic in Toronto, performing custom arrangements of several well-loved regional tunes from Azerbaijan, Lorestan and Khorasan. 

Both Fayaz and Farahmand are well-versed in the classical modal music of Iran (known as dastgah), and Sepanji has a wealth of experience in the world of Western classical music. Together, they create music grounded in rich musical tradition while pushing the boundaries of their respective genres to cultivate something truly special.

In 2010 she moved to Canada, releasing her solo percussion album Unbound, collaborating with top performers of world music. Farahmand has vast experience conducting workshops worldwide. In 2016, she released her first Instructional DVD on Persian rhythms, The Iranian Daf in international drumming language.
