Arash Sasan is an Iranian Singer/Songwriter. His musical career began when he was a little boy. His parents, being aware of his interest in music, sent him to The Carl Orff Music College at the age of 5. He then studied and played the piano and keyboard. His first attempt in writing songs was at the age of 14, after he fell in love for the first time. Some years later he was bewitched by the sound of the guitar and began to learn first Classical and then Flamenco guitar. He also tutored young people to share with them his love for music.
At this time he studied “political economics” and worked as an economist at the Ministry of Agriculture for 4 years: "We travelled through the whole country, met a wide variety of cultures and sub-cultures. I had the chance to witness their lives firsthand and hear their great musical heritage."
At the age of 28, his interest in European culture and his pursuit of furthering his career brought him to Germany where he completed his studies in “Media – Informatics”.
He says: "Here I am visiting various music seminars and performing live, solo, as well as with other musicians, I have a great hunger to go ahead in this direction and to earn more."
After each live performance, people would ask him, if he would have an album. Therefore he decided to record his songs. After finishing his studies in Germany, he goes back home (The Title “I’m going Home”), stays for 3 Months in Iran and begins to record his songs at a small studio in Tehran.
It started in very simple way, just to become very complex in the end: I would play the guitar, sing and it would be recorded. Then we put some drums samples on it. This would be only the beginning.
Some instruments are recorded in Iran. Back in Munich he calls some of his friends such as Geoff Goodman (Jazz guitarist), Johann Bengen (Drummer and Percussionist) and Ro Clausman( Rock guitarist) to work with him on this project.
After 4 months and a lot of hard work and lots of good times, it sounds very good, and Arash decides that the CD needs to be published in Iran. Therefore he tries to get the required state permission. But after some long months, he has to accept that it is impossible to publish it in Iran at this point in history.
Therefore he decided to publish his songs on the internet and soon after a German label published his album, Green Dream.
