Arash Zanganeh

Percussionist Composer and Founder of the Sufi Art Group in Brisbane  

Arash Zanganeh is a Persian percussionist, composer and teacher whose work draws on Sufi traditions and Iranian folkloric music from regional Iran.

Originally from Iran, Arash is now a mainstay of the World music scene in Queensland and is also well-known throughout Australia and in Iran.  

Arash’s father, Ali Asghar Khan Zanganeh was an esteemed Iranian instrument maker and advocate of traditional Iranian music. Arash grew up steeped in the surrounding musical atmosphere of ‘the heyday of Persian classical music’ from 1985-95.

During his studies and after graduation, Arash has continued to research traditional folk, classical and devotional music around the Middle East.

His interest in World music was ignited by his participation in the Oriental Music Exchange (Tajali Program) in India sponsored by the Iranian Cultural Attaché in New Delhi in 2000. In the same year his recording with the great female mystic Abida Parveen, and the recording project Rumi in the Land of Khusrau in honour of Jalāl ad‐Dīn Muhammad Balkhī and Amir Khusrau Dehlavi in India, also inspired his passion for devotional music.

From 2011-13 Arash taught music in Melbourne at the Australian Persian Arts Centre. He has also toured across Australia with the Sufi Art Group (including Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast).

From 2014 Arash has been a composer and percussionist with the Ensemble Diaspora World music group in Brisbane, producing and co-composing with Sebastian Flynn, the music to the film ‘Ritual’ recorded in Australia and Iran.
