Biography

Morteza Neydavood (1900-1990)
Mortezá Neydávood was born in Tehrán, Irán in 1900 to a Jewish family with a musical heritage. His father, Bálá Khán, was a famous Tonbak Player(Persian goblet drum) and his house served as a shelter for the most popular musicians. When Neydávood was a child he tried to play the Tár, a Persian instrument, without any instruction. After Bálá Khán discovered his son’s talent, he enrolled him in a Ramezán Zolfaghri’s music class. He was there for seven months, until his teacher referred him to the music class of Aghá Hosseingholli, a well-known musician. He studied Persian classical music under Aghá Hosseingholli direction for two and a half years, and then he went to the class of Darvish Khán, another master musician, for three years. In a short period of time he was able to get a gold medal award as the most talented student in Darvish Khán’s class.
Mortezá Neydávood opened his own class in 1925.He named his school “Darvish”, in honor of his deceased master Darvish Khán. In this class he taught Tár and vocals. After he began his class, his student Ghamar, became the star vocalist of Persian traditional music. And after a few years they performed together for the first time in the “Palace Movie Theater” in Tehrán. When Darvish Khán passed away, Neydávood held a benefit concert to pay Darvish Khán‘s many debts.
Neydávood performed for the Tehrán Radio station after it’s opening for ten years. At that time, he was playing in the company of other well-known musicians such as Ghamar, Banán, Sabá, Mahjoobi, Shahnázi, and others. Some of the performances were recorded in “His Master Voice” and “Polyphone” Recording Company.
