Farhad Mehrad (1944 – 2002) is an iconic figure in Persian alternative music. His music journey began by playing the piano and covering Rock 'n' Roll songs in a band. Then, he started singing original songs in Persian. Farhad failed to achieve wide audience during his active years. Although, he was banned for several years, his songs were noticed and recognized widely amongst younger generations after the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. Today he is cited as one of the most influential contemporary Iranian musicians. House No. 4 has run annual events, ‘Tribute to Farhad’ ,with plenty of young artists of Iranian alternative scene participation to cherish the legacy of highly respected and unrepeatable Farhad.
