Sahar Dolatshahi in Homayun Shajarian’s concert

In a tweet on Tuesday, Switzerland’s Embassy in the capital posted a picture of Shajarian as he received the letter from Ambassador Nadine Olivieri Lozano. The Embassy also paid respect to Homayoun’s late father, Maestro Mohammad Reza Shajarian, legendary classical singer. Mohammad Reza Shajarian, the country’s most prominent and internationally-acclaimed vocalist in the area of traditional Persian music, died of cancer in 2020. Homayoun joined Conservatory of Music, choosing Kamancheh as his professional instrument and was tutored by Ardeshir Kamkar.
