After I finished high school (Pahlavi High in Hamedan, Iran), I moved to the States to continue my education in Business. After I graduated, due to my love of Iranian music I decided to start Cabaret Tehran. At the time friends and family were against the idea because I had no experience in running a restaurant or a nightclub. Regardless of their opposition and with limited resources (Iranian T.V, Radio, Magazine and a lot less Iranian population) being available, I continued running Cabaret Tehran and never gave up. Before you know it Cabaret Tehran became the only place for Persian singers to perform and entertain and for people to enjoy their time and reconnect with the music. Today everyone knows who I am and what I’ve done and there’s nothing more pleasing than knowing that people acknowledge my efforts and hard work in keeping the music alive and presenting it outside of Iran.
