The Nava Ensemble
Shahriar Saleh was born in 1948 in Tehran, Iran, and began playing Santur
at the age of eleven followed by Violin and Guitar. He came to the US
in 1967, and while attending an Engineering School, he studied music as
his minor. Since 1982 he has been teaching Santur, Violin, Tombak, Vocal
and Guitar, and he is proud to have been able to establish Nava Ensemble,
and to share his love and knowledge of the Persian Classical Music with
many talented Iranian students of all ages. For the last several years,
Shahriar has been working as an Engineering Project Manager with NIH,
and upon retirement, he hopes to be able to establish a formal artistic
center in the Washington Metropolitan Area for preservation and enhancement
of the Persian Classical Music, as well as many other unique arts of Iran.
