How our geographic, linguistic, and ethnic identity reflects in the music? Hooshyar Khayam explains this in his speech with a practical performance approach. Hooshyar Khayam, born in 1978 , is an Iranian pianist and composer who has established himself as a versatile musician. He has been active as composer, soloist, and improvisor in contemporary classics, Jazz, world music, music for film and theater, video-art, and animation. Khayam’s music has been performed by artists such as Hossein Alizadeh, Aram Talalyan, Wayne Foster-Smith, Todd Palmer, Zsofia Boros, and Isabel Villanueva. Khayam's released solo albums include “Tatari”, "Thousand Acacias",“All Of You”, "Sea's Seven Days", "Verses of the Night", "Verses in the Wind" (featuring vocal artist Farzaneh Joorabchi, under publication).

Khayam’s most honorable recognitions include the laureate of "Queen Elisabeth International Composition Competition" (2013) for his piano concerto "Before the Dream is Over", first prize award winner of "Franz Schubert and Modern Music International Composition Competition" (2011) for his trio "I Waited for You in Rain".
