Pejman Tadayon is a musician, composer and painter. He is the director of the Pejman Tadayon Ensemble. He has released several music albums, including Universal Sufi Music. Pejman plays the oud, kamancheh, ney, daff, and setar. He is also an innovative painter and the creator of pittura sonora, paintings that are musical instruments with strings that can be played.
Born in Esfahan, Iran, Pejman lives and creates in Rome, Italy. Pejman Tadayon’s Sufi ensemble merges the three disciplines that best express the essence of Sufism: music, dance and poetry. Persian Sufi music consists of devotional compositions inspired by the verses of mystic poets such as Rumi, Hafiz, and Sa’adi, among others. Music is also the basis of the Sema, the ceremony of the whirling dervishes. The beauty and sacredness of Sufi music and dance represent the yearning for union with the divine.
