After 22 years of friendship we finally made it!! This is me & Nima Javadi’s 1st official collaboration as singer-songwriter and video maker. We dreamed of this when we were sitting on the same bench at middle school back in Tehran. All we knew was that we would eventually end up in the world of creativity, and we did!
