Itai Armon

Itai Armon Itai Armon is a musician, composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist, specializing in the Persian tar. Itai began his musical journey playing flute and studying Western classical music and jazz. He then began studying the ancient music of the Mediterranean and Central Asia. Throughout his travels (in Israel, South America, India, Nepal, Egypt, Greece, and Turkey, among others), he integrated various musical traditions and began to develop a unique compositional style influenced by the diverse cultures he encountered. The compositions are inspired by Itai's extensive travels, combining a modern sound with the ancient music of these regions - as well as the musical traditions of his native Israel. Itai studied ancient music and the Persian tar with various teachers, including Piris Eliyahu (Israel) and Hooshang Farahani (Iran). Throughout the past decade, he has performed with many different ensembles and musical groups and also composes music for dance and theatre performances. In the beginning of 2016, Itai released his debut album of original world music: Moments.
