Media Coverage

„Mortazavi live is incomparable!”

„Rhythm and spirituality – Mortazavi combines both and delivers incredible energy through his music“
(NDR Kulturjournal)

„Watching the unbelievably virtuos soloist, one could get the impression he does not have two but at least six hands.“

„You could also say, this is a revolution.“

„Like sound from a different world.“
(NDR Kultur)

„The best hand-drummer worldwide …“

„Fastest hands on earth“

„Flying fingers“
(3 Sat)

„Drummer of freedom“



film by Acci Baba, music by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (2017)

An experimental film to examine metaphysical conception of the beginning. The work embodies the philosophic and the scientific perceptions of materialization, expressed as various forms of origin. Additional to the conceptions, the scene is blended by artist’s indefinable memory represented as a white bright room and tunnel leading to a source of light. The screenplay crossovers between the reality and memory, generating a imagination unrestricted by plot and time.
