Amin Ebrahimi (1997) was born in Mashhad, the second biggest city of Iran. He started his musical journey as a guitarist and followed guitar and music theory courses with Hassan Ghazihosseini

Amin entered the university of IAUM to study architecture. Meanwhile he got interested in flamenco music and worked as guitar teacher in known institutes of Mashhad as Neydavood and Ordibehesht and Shabahang.

Amin has been active in the musical life of the Netherlands from the start. His work Baroon got performed in Het Cenakel only two months after he arrives in Tilburg, and the première of his string quartet Three Short Stories Form the Dead to the Living took place in Muziekgebouw Einhoven

In 2020 his large-scale work for orchestra and choir ”He Woke Up in the Snake’s Dream” was performed in the concert halls of Tilburg and Eindhoven in a program with philharmonie zuid and the Brabantkoor. The music critics were all enthusiastic about this work. Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad wrote: “Amin Ebrahimi in particular created a fascinating work with He woke up in the snake’s dream, with a humming choir as the highlight.” Later in the same year he got commissioned by Gaudeamus Muziekweek to write a song cycle for 75th anniversary of the festival, the piece had a sold-out premiere in TivoliVredenburg Hertz hall. For the same composition, Amin and his colleagues won the prize of ”the Netherlands Embassy’s Online Cultural Challenge”.
