Kamran Rastegar
     
  Kamran Rastegar was born in 1970 and lived in Shiraz, Iran, until 1983. Since then he has resided primarily in the US, with periods spent in Egypt and Iran. His work in music began at college, where he completed a B.A. in musicology, focusing on composition, and sociology of Middle Eastern music. At college he also began his studies of Arabic and received initial training on the Oud and maqam theory in Egypt. Having finished his Ph.D. in Arabic and Persian literature and film at Columbia University in New York City, presently Kamran is teaching at University of Edinburgh, where he continues his studies and work in music, which has largely focused on computer-based recordings involving both live and synthetic instruments for film soundtracks. Kamran also performs on the Oud with different live instrumental ensembles in the UK.
