ABOUT
Shahriyar Jamshidi, a Kurdish Kamāncheh / Kamānche/ Kamānça (four-stringed-spiked-fiddle) player, composer, vocalist, founder of the Dilan Chamber Ensemble and member of Kamancello, is a graduate of Tehran University of Art and a former artist-in-residence at Banff Centre.

Shahriyar has devoted his artistic profession to the preservation and transmission of the Kurdish musical heritage. An illustrious Kurdish Kamānche player with pronounced cultural background, he’s also well-known for his creative and masterful kamānche improvisations, both as a soloist and in ensembles.
He has performed at numerous Iranian music venues including Roudaki Hall and had been invited for interviews and live performances on several radio and TV channels including, Kurdistan TV, The Voice of America Kurdish, and CBC.
Since settling in Canada in 2012, Shahriyar has consistently sought new musical languages, thereby crossing cultures with his Kamancheh recitals. He has already performed at International Society for Improvised Music (ISIM), Switzerland and Canada; High-Fest, Armenia; Festival du Monde Arabe de Montréal; Ontario Contact; 33rd World Conference of International Society for Music Education, Azerbaijan; University of Minneapolis School of Music, United State; Cello Biennial, Netherlands; Canadian Opera Company, and Windsor Symphony Orchestra.
