This month GMM welcomes a special guest: ASADI is a Persian-American Electronic Music Producer & Performance Artist from Columbus, Ohio. He is known for his rare middle eastern influence and impressive performance ability. In the studio, his knowledge in the land of Persian Composition uniquely activates a sense of timelessness that the world can resonate with, and his instruments play a strong role in illustrating such emotion.
They include the Persian Setar, Persian Tar, Persian Daf, and Italian Mandolin. He brings these delicate sounds to life when performed with his drum machine, in which he effortlessly triggers his entire rhythm section completely live on 16 electronic pads. ASADI’s artistry derived from a lifetime passion in writing songs, first learning piano at the age of 5. In high school, his parents gifted him with a drum pad and some Persian instruments he never knew existed. This flipped a switch and birthed the 10 year voyage to who he is today. From his diligent hustle on social media, from a thousand hours of perfecting is craftlive, and from the constant desire to create truly extraordinary music, a precious die-hard following has inevitably grown to represent the sound of ASADI Worldwide.
