Η βιογραφία της Golfam Khayam


Iranian born musician and classical guitarist Golfam Khayam has evolved into an international career as a performer-composer . Her career reflects her unique musical language through the integration of her native ethnic musical elements within a contemporary music framework. Her particular musical language continues to intrigue audiences worldwide. Khayam has appeared as a soloist and performer-composer in prestigious music festivals—including the Glatt&Verkehrt (Austira), Orient-Occident (Geneva), Aarhus International Guitar Festival, Copenhagen Guitar Festival, Basel Culturescapes Festival, Geneva Music Festival, Aalborg International Guitar Festival,,Grandin Festival (USA), and Yerevan Naregatsi Art Festival among other places. She was invited to the Royal Danish Academy of Music in 2013 for a lecture, “Integration of Persian Music in Contemporary Music.”

Winner of Geneva Conservatory’s 2009 concerto competition, Khayam performed as a soloist with the Geneva Conservatory Orchestra under the baton of Domingo Garcia. Her highly distinguished final soloist diploma project involved interpretation and improvisation of music of Dusan Bogdanovic, along with the adaptation of ethnic elements and instrumental techniques for classical guitar. This project was promoted as a recording published with Doberman-Yppan Records in Canada under the title ​»Ravi» (Storyteller).

She received her degree Master of Music with a scholarship award from the College Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati. She studied under the direction of Clare Callahan,  coaching of Oscar Ghiglia and Lee Fiser. She continued her studies at the Geneva Conservatory in Switzerland with Dusan Bogdanovic, during which she received her degree of Interprétation Specialisée Solist.

Apart from her career as a soloist, Khayam enjoys collaborating with traditional Iranian musicians. These partnerships fulfill her interest in discovering overlaps between her musical heritage and the Western tradition. Such collaboration is featured in her «Ravi» album with the virtuoso Oud player, Siavash Roshan, as the oud replaces the second guitar in «Byzantine Theme and Variations.”

Khayam has participated in several master classes and workshops including  Nigel North, Leo Witoszynski, Anielo Desiderio, Raphaella Smits, and Carlos Pérez, among many others.

In 2014, she received her third degree of Master in performer-composer at the Geneva Conservatory, where she studied composition and orchestration with Dusan Bogdanovic, Nicolas Bolens, Victor Cordero, and Marc Rappaz.  She has been a teaching assistant in the guitar gepartment at CCM,  guitar teacher at the «Geneva International School», and guest lecturer at the University of Art, Performance Department in Tehran. In May 2014, she was awarded a two years fellowship research assistant atthe  Geneva Conservatory. Meanwhile she continues to travel and promote her musical message. She plays on the George Lowden guitar.
