The Persian magazines ‘Chelcheragh’ and ‘Nasle javan’ have called Shahab Tolouie as the creator of a new style. It is inspired by Persian music which is carefully paralleled with Flamenco elements.
Shahab Tolouie was very fortunate to have the opportunity to develop his talent through contact with some of the best Iranian musical masters of his time. This intense influence did not diminish his interest in flamenco, however, it continued to grow and profoundly affect him to the point that, following his graduation from high school, he departed for Seville, Spain. There he studied his flamenco master course, attaining the highest level of achievement, “Nivel Alto.”
After returning from Spain, Shahab Tolouie was recognized as one of the best Iranian guitar players by “The House of Music of Iran.”
The fusion of Flamenco and Persian music became his goal and now defines his distinct style “EthnoFlamenco.” Here he found his musical home, choosing lyrics from the ancient Sufi poems of Moulana Rumi, the unique Ghazals of Hafez and the poems of Ferdousi.
As a multi-instrumentalist, he incorporates different traditional Persian instruments such as the Setar, Laud, Mandola, Daf and Dammam, along with the Flamenco Guitar, in his compositions.
