Massoud Shaari is one of leading musicians of the specialized instrument setar in Iran.he was born in 1961 in Tehran , Iran. From the very childhood, he was deeply attached to Iranian music and started learning santur at the age of thirteen, taught by the lost artist Manijeh Alipour. After a while, he turned to learn setar, monitored by Dariush Tala’i and has continued playing it ever since. In 1982, he begun learning tar, taught by Mohammad Reza Lotfi, through whom he became acquainted with the art of Iranian traditional music systems (radif) and its mysteries. In the meantime, he was honored to be trained by master Ali Asghar Bahari and spent a while playing old pieces with him.
Great interest in Setar lead him to Hossein Alizâdeh , and in fact his artistic promotion is indebted to this valuable master of Iranian music. As to the fact that, in his childhood, he had also been trained by some outstanding masters such as Saeed Hormozi and Yusef Forutan, managed to become fully familiar and accustomed to Iranian classical music and discovered its delicacies and beauties.
