Mahan Mirarab is a musician and composer. He grew up in the Iranian capital Tehran and lives in Vienna. Anyone who listens to Mirarab play his multi-neck guitar understands the honest language the artist articulates in his music.

European elements of chamber music combined with contemporary forms of jazz. They open a new interpretation of Iranian classical music.

He represents a generation of young migrant musicians in Europe who are changing the sound borders in the music industry and are pushing for more diversity with respect to quality, dialogue, and creativity. His aim is to introduce a new narrative through music in regard to middle eastern cultures and jazz and in doing so he has succeeded to create his complex yet approachable style.

Jazz defines as a kind of philosophy by Mirarab. It is a way of solidarity, how to fight for one’s identity, he says. “As a migrant in Europe, I bring strong influences from my cultural background”, Mirarab amplifies. “Through the philosophy of jazz, I find my own language, with the help of which I can break out of traditional conventions.”
