Damahi Live in Berlin

Damahi is the name for a gigantic mythical fish. The legend says it lived in the waters of the Persian Gulf and the people of Hormuzgan (a Southern coastal province in Iran) believed it to have hosted a utopia in its abdomen, wherein love and music did flourish.

The Band Damahi; however, was formed in 2014 by Dara Daraei (Bass/Band Leader), Reza Koolaghani (Singer), Hamze Yeganeh (Keyboards/Benjou), Ebrahim Alavi (Oud/Guitars) and Shayan Fathi (Drums/Percussions). The band’s music is in part an homage to Iranian folk music, concentrating on music from Southern Iran. To that end, by adopting melodies and lyrics from Sistan and Balouchestan, Hormuzgan and Bandar Abbasi pop music; and integrating melodies and lyrics with certain features of Jazz, Rock, Reggae, Pop, Afro music and Indian music, the band tries to renovate and maintain the aural heritage of the South.

Damahi is having their debut concert in Berlin on July 7th. This concert is part of the band's European tour and will be held in Prachtwerk Berlin.
Tickets will be available soon.
