Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat is among the most important performers of Persian vocal music in the world today. The career of the two Iranian sisters has given a deeper knowledge about Iranian poetry and music to large audiences in Europe, America, Asia, Oceania and Africa.

The Islamic Revolution in 1979 imposed restrictions to artistic expressions, and especially for woman. Still they enjoy international carres, and several interesting collaborations around the world.

Mahsa og Marjan Vahdat have performed at stages like Carnegie Hall in New York, CCR in Istanbul, and at the Reggio in Italy and several other festivals around Europe.

The sisters offer several formats and line ups, including collaboration with the Tord Gustavsen, Kronos Quartet, The Rembrant Trio (NL), Gjermund Silset, Kenneth Ekornes and Ahmad Al Khatib.

The duo’s contribution to the record «Lullabies from the Axis of Evil» caught the attention of music lovers everywhere. The album was produced by Eirik Hillestad. Since then the sisterens have released a string of albums.
