Ali Pahlavan is an award-winning Australian-Iranian singer and songwriter. Pop music was banned in Iran after the 1979 revolution for 10 years, and it was only in 1999 that Ali gained the liberty of founding the country’s first mixed gender pop band -The Arian Band.
The band became very successful but at the same time faced a lot of challenges from the religious hardliners because of their western music style and stage work that involved women. As part of the Arian band, Ali released 6 albums and sold millions of records nationally. His band also performed more than 400 gigs in Iran and around the world, soaring to success and getting a great platform to showcase their remarkable talents. However, due to a complicated process which involved him releasing a song and requiring a mandated permission from Iran’s Ministry of Culture, Ali had to switch to his main profession putting aside his musical talents and working in Project Management. Today, back into the musical industry, creating memorable and stunning compositions, Ali Pahlavan is set to soar and improve.
