The Persis started as one of the few progressive rock bands in Iran back in 2007.

Out of more than 20 tracks written and performed by “The Persis”, only a handful was officially approved by the Iranian Ministry of Culture and their first official album, Melodious Silence, was released back in 2009.

Mehran Aminian, the founder of the band immigrated to Canada in 2010, and reformed the Persis with a new setup and fresh ideas in 2011. Since then, the Persis has written and performed in several local events.

The Persis performance in Tirgan 2015 turned out to be one of the most successful performances of the band. Collaboration of the Persis in a tribute concert for the great Farhad Mehrad in 2016, was another significant achievement for them.

This year the Persis is delighted to offer a completely new repertoire, among which two single tracks “Hey…” and “Shak” were released in 2016 and 2017, have brought great global feedback for the band
