From Iran To The World: The Accomplished Career of Percussionist Bardia Sadeghi


Bardia Sadeghi, a renowned Iranian percussionist, began his musical journey at a young age. He gave his first live concert at the age of three on the show “Sobhe Jome Ba Shoma,” hosted by Manouchehr Nozari. Despite facing challenges as a musician in Iran, Bardia continued to perform at various cultural and non-cultural events and international concerts in Iran, the United States, Japan, Canada, and more. At the age of 12, he was recognized as the youngest professional musician in Iran and featured in the book “Men of Iranian Musicians.” Throughout his career, Bardia has collaborated with many prominent musicians and has played the percussion in over 40 musical albums.

Since then, Bardia has become a well-known percussionist in Iran and Canada and has won numerous awards, including first place in the Tonbak Festival in Tehran in 1993 and the Fajr Festival from 1994 to 1997, as well as the Global Music Awards in 2022. He has performed in concerts both domestically and internationally, and has collaborated with many famous musicians around the world.

In addition to his successful music career, Bardia has also taken Iranian percussion to the next level by opening the Dafan Academy in Vancouver, where he teaches students about Iranian percussion. He also leads the Dafan Band, the first and largest Iranian Percussion band in North America, and has written eight books on how to play Iranian percussion.

Bardia is not just a percussionist, but also a talented singer, having released several songs including “Panic Not”, “Che Sakhteh”, “Baghalam Kon”, “Doroogh”, and more. His recent songs have even been chosen for the encore of TV series with millions of viewers around the world.

In 2018, Bardia married Nasim Irani, who is also a member of the Dafan Band and performs on the daf and kouzeh. Together, they welcomed their son Samyar Sadeghi in January 2022 and hope that he will become the youngest performer in the Dafan Band.

Bardia has a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Science from Iran and a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Canada. Currently, he is working with his brother, Reza Sadeghi, who is a master in sound engineering and music composition, on his new songs and a new music video set to be released in the spring of 2023.
