About Majid

 

He was born on 20th November 1984 in one of the middle level living complexes in west Tehran. That gave him the opportunity of experiencing a sort of colonial western Life style during the dark days of Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) which  affected his childhood in a different way; so he grew up in an atmosphere of social graffiti protest and skate boarding fearful Iranian youth who were trying to escape the dark days of war in their small unhappy party's and consuming bad quality handmade alcohol drinks.

In those days that Music was announced Haram ( Forbidden ) by government and there was no official production of Music inside Iran, people started to use and hear Persian music produced in Los Angles. The same music which was used in wedding party's, Birthday Party's and every other occasions. Majid also started to hear the same music which was used by the Family and Friends. But later on as he grew a little more when he was 14 by an accident he found an Album from Michael Jackson ( Bad ) that affected him in very serious way. Specially a Song called ''Leave me Alone''. A year before this accident his elder sister Mali started to take private guitar lessons at Home and so she bought a guitar which was kept hidden all the time from young Majid. But he managed a trick to steel this guitar whenever Mali wasn't around. An a year before this event Majid took two hours of Tonbak lessons by an old former member of Shah's Army, which led him to buy a Santoor though he was not interested in Persian Traditional music. But playing around with Santoor taught him a lot about scales and Orph and alphabet of music.

Like mentioned before because he wasn’t interested in Persian traditional music at some point he owned his sisters guitar and never gave it back and started to teach himself scales and chords using his musical creativity and his natural talent.
