Alexander Meimand studied the musical traditions - ​Radif modal systems - of Classical Persian Music through Ostad Vahid-Reza Bayat, in the lineage of Maestro Darvish-Khân and legendary Lotfi. He maintains traditional foundations and interprets the ancient gems into modern creations. His style of Tar playing is unique and pulls listeners into a journey of return to the heart.

Alexander aims to induce trance states and a deep sense of heart presence in listeners. These ancient modal systems and melodies are a science of the heart. The Persian Tar (800-900 years old) is a spiritual tool, as it has been used throughout history, and much less of a recreational activity.

'Whoever gets caught in Your curls,
whether dead or nonexistent, will come into life.
You ask of me not to lose myself in drunkenness, but it's inescapable.
Whoever drinks the Wine gets drunk.'
