King Raam Solo Performance in Toronto
Raam's one-man performance is a tribute in word and song to the legacy of his late father, Kavous Seyed Emami, an Iranian/Canadian professor and environmentalist, who was unjustly imprisoned under false pretenses in January of 2018, and subsequently died under suspicious circumstances two weeks later. A few weeks later as their family tried to leave Iran and return to Canada his mother Maryam Mombeini was detained at the airport while the sons were allowed to leave. Maryam has been essentially held hostage for over 400 days while her sons are pursuing every diplomatic channel to bring her back home to Canada.

Blending his own musical style with intimate stories of his life, he weaves an emotional roller coaster of a narrative that reveals a window into the life of his father and the aftermath of his death at the hands of the Iranian authorities.

Raam is a musician currently based in Vancouver, Canada. He started his musical career as the founder/singer/songwriter of Hypernova, an underground Iranian rock band. Raam continued his musical path under a solo project called King Raam. Pioneering the path for many of his contemporaries, Raam has become an integral part of the alternative Iranian cultural scene not only for his music but also for his outspoken naturenever shying away from speaking up about the challenges and obstacles that have become a normal part of the lives of many Iranians across the world, and especially back home.

Raam has been featured in The New York Times, MTV, NPR, Vanity Fair, CNN, PBS, BBC, and VICE.
