The pianist who lost it
Meet Mehrdad. He is a master pianist and a great teacher.
A few years back, his life flipped and he fell into addiction. Then he lost everything; His home, piano and studio, and life on the street became his only option.
Nothing could help.
Then, somewhere in that darkness, the world threw him an accordion...
And so it began. His Journey back to the surface. When Sina and I met him to shoot his video for his cd release, things were looking up. He was on a rehab program, had a small studio, and he was very happy to be living as the dignified artist that certainly deserves to be.
Shout out to Ali Samadpour for making the Kherad Art House label which helps young and marginalized musicians record and release their music and for letting us do this project.
