A fusion vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter, Hamed Nikpay has been a pioneering & experimental artist for over a decade. His music transcends all boundaries and genres, and is an artful transformation of Classical Persian melodies to soulful Flamenco, mystical fusion of transcendental Sufi sounds with smooth jazz, masterly transition of folkloric Persian ballads to Argentinian Tango, all laced with eloquent poetries of revered Persian poets, ancient & contemporary, incisively chosen by him.

Hamed's passionate live performances, and electrifying voice, has mesmerized audiences throughout the world and has earned him the reputation as one of "Iran's best young vocalists".

He has produced 4 albums --"Solo Passage", "All Is Calm", "Spellbound" and the just released ground breaking & quintessential fusion album "Reaching You," which will be debuted for the first time at Yoshi's San Francisco.

He will be accompanied with a world class ensemble -- Farzin Farhadi on Soprano Sax, Satnam Ramgotra on Tabla, Hussain Jiffry on bass, and Alfredo Cáceres on Flamenco Guitar.
