Hamid Saeidi - Santoor
Dynamic. Captivating. Transcendent.
These are the words critics and music lovers around the world use to describe musician, producer and award-winning composer Hamid Saeidi’s work. His composition, Imaginary Knots, coalesces classical Persian themes with contemporary, tour de force instrumentation to create a truly unique, truly magical experience.
Over his career, Hamid has composed musical scores for more than 30 films, television programs, dance and theatrical presentations, receiving awards at the Beirut film festival (2002), the Iran TV Festival (2002-2004-2007) and the Society of Critics of Theater in Iran (2005).
In recognition of his accomplishments on the international stage, The Farhang Foundation in Los Angeles commissioned original multimedia compositions by Hamid in 2011 and 2012 for their annual Nowruz celebration of Persian culture at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
He is currently collaborating and touring with an eclectic group of musicians and performers who span several musical traditions, giving their audiences a direct experience in the transformative power of music.
