Jalal Zolfonun

Jalaal Zulfonun was an Iranian musician, setaar player, and a prominent composer and teacher of Persian music. He has also collaborated with Maurice Béjart in the mix of Iranian music and European Ballet dance. Between 1975 and 1980, he collaborated with Jean During on his acquaintance with Iranian music. Jalal Zolfonun was born in Abadeh, Fars, Iran, and received his earliest musical training from his father, Habib Zoufonoun, and his older brother, Mahmoud Zoufonoun on the tar. At the age of 13, Zolfonun enrolled the National School for Iranian Music to study musical theory, composition and technique under Ruhollah Khaleghi and Musa Khan Maroufi. While he immediately fell in love with setar, the instrument was not taken seriously in those times. He instead decided to study the tar, while also learning the violin from his brother Mahmoud Zoufonoun. In 1967, Zolfonun was accepted into the faculty of the fine arts department of Tehran University, where he further studied the setar with Master Noor Ali Boroumand and Dariush Safvat. From then on, he dedicated himself to the delicate instrument. He began combining the techniques of the older masters of setar (an Iranian instrument with four metal strings) with his own ingenuity and mystic sensitivity. For the first time, with Iran’s leading classical singer Shahram Nazeri, he founded an ensemble composed of only setar players. Later, in the 1980s, Zolfonoun and Nazeri’s compositions were released in two best-seller albums, one of which, Gol-e Sadbarg (“One hundred-petalled Rose”), is the best selling album of classical Iranian music ever.
