Persrock was a Swiss-Persian rock band founded by me in 2012 in Zurich. A project on a global scale which aimed to open a new window in the music scene as well as create an alternative bridge for those who are interested in Persian poetry and melody with the taste of rock. A combination of powerful oriental literature and immense western music. The idea of Persrock originated from a project of mine at the Zurich University of the Arts. Only later did it turn from a musical project to a full-fledged rock band. Persrock’s self-titled debut dealed with various topics such as social norms, love, and freedom of thought. After the first album and several tours in Europe, Persrock was able to own a name and amongst other places it also went viral in the Tehran underground community. The rebellious music genre and critical lyrics touched many hearts of people there and at the same time it was also uncomfortable for the system. Rock music and Persian poetry achieved their purpose. I hope to have inspired people to keep rocking. In 2015, Persock released its last song “Inja Nistam”, which means “I’m not here”. A farewell message to fans and that was the end of the story.
