Drawn to the music of progressive rock, FARHOOD GHADIRI formed MAVARA
(translation: "beyond everything you think") in Tehran in 2001. Counting PINK
FLOYD, RUSH and ELOY among its strongest influences, the band has since
released 3 albums, and despite the restrictions put on rock music in Iran,
MAVARA has developed a fanbase in the Middle East and in parts of Europe where
they have managed to perform. Known for its lush music, atmospheres and
emotional vocals, MAVARA will be featuring music from its latest release,
Season Of Salvation.
MAVARA (Iran) joins OUT OF THE BEARDSPACE (US), CORIMA (US), OBLIVION SUN
(US), HERD OF INSTINCT (US), MIRIODOR (Canada), THANK YOU SCIENTIST (US)
and SIMAKDIALOG (Indonesia) at ProgDay 2013, the nineteenth edition of the
world's longest running progressive rock festival. ProgDay 2013 will take
place on Saturday, August 31st, and Sunday, September 1st, at Storybook Farm
in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. For more information, and to hear music
