Homayoon Khorram

Homayoon Khorram, a prominent Iranian composer and violinist, was laid to rest on Sunday January 20 in the Artists section of Tehran’s Beheshte Zahra.

ISNA reports that icons of Iranian music such as Mohammadreza Shajarian attended the funeral procession and accompanied Mohammad Mousavi’s reed music in song in front of Vahdat Hall. Musicians from Khorram’s birthplace, Bushehr in southern Iran, also accompanied the procession with their local instruments.

Khorram, one of the last remaining students of Iranian music master Abolhassan Saba, had been suffering from intestinal cancer and passed away on Thursday January 17 at the age of 82.
