Biography

Tehran, Iran (1944 – 2002)

Farhad Mehrad (Persian: فرهاد مهراد) widely known in Iran as Farhad (January 20 1944, Tehran, Iran - August 31 2002, Paris, France), was a Persian legendary singer/musician. He rose to prominence among Iranian classical/folk musicians before the Islamic Revolution, but after the revolution he was banned from singing for several years. His first concert after 1978 was held in San Francisco in 1997. Farhad CDs are available from his official website

Farhad was born in Tehran. His father was Reza Mehrad, an Iranian diplomat who worked in the Arabic countries for the Iranian ministry of foreign affairs. Being the youngest child he always behaved differently than his family members and everyone assumed he was trying to act like an adults.
When Farhad was three years of age his love for music was noticed when he stayed outside his brothers’ room, listening to his Violin lessons. His family bought Farhad a Chello and he started taking lessons. After 3 lessons, his Chello broke and as Farhad describes “the instrument broke into pieces so did my soul”. That was the end of the Chello for Farhad and his love and passion for music ended up to be only listening to his brother playing the Violin.
When he went to school he found a passion for literature. He decided to study literature in high school but with the absence of his father, his uncle forced him to study science despite his weak results on all other subjects other than literature and English language. His interest being ignored; he quit high school on the 11th year, because he had no love for what he was studying.

    کیست که بتواند آتش بر کف دست نهد و با یاد کوه های پر برف قفقاز خود را سرگرم کند؟ یا تیغ تیز گرسنگی را با یاد سفره های رنگارنگ کُند کند؟ یا برهنه در برف دی ماه فرو غلتد و به آفتاب تموز بیاندیشد...!؟ نه، هیچکس! هیچکس چنین خطری را به چنان خاطره ای تاب نیاورد از آنکه خیال خوبی ها درمان بدی ها نیست بلکه صد چندان بر زشتی آنها می افزاید
