Javid and Flamenco Guitar

Javid embarked upon the path that would eventually lead to a professional career in music by studying classical guitar at the tender age of 12. Javid studied guitar at the Tehran Music Conservatory in the picturesque and ancient city of Tehran, Iran. The serene and melodic guitar tones proved mesmerizing, and thus imbued his heart and soul with the indelible creative inspiration that would sustain him throughout the road that lay ahead.

At the age of 20, having studied classical guitar for 8 years, the young musician emigrated to France, where he made the acquaintance of three gypsy Flamenco guitarists performing along that quintessential "grand avenue" of Paris, the Champs-Elysees, so alive with cafes, concert halls and theatres. Their hauntingly lyrical Flamenco music cast a spell upon the youthful guitarist, an enchantment that would propel him to new horizons.

It was while living along the Champs-Elysees that his developing musical style came under the influence of such notable guitar masters as Andre Segovia, Paco de Lucia and Manitas de Plata. The stage was now set, and after five years in France he moved to Munich, Germany, where he lived for a brief period, all the while concentrating on the continuing development and evolution of his own distinctive musical style.

Javid & Naoko

In early 2000 the course of both his professional and personal life would forever be altered by a chance meeting with Naoko from city of Hiroshima, Japan. They married in June, 2000 and have become his partners in both life & Music.

Naoko has not only proven to be an incredible font of inspiration to his creativity, but has also significantly contributed to his musical endeavors through her own unique talents, both performing with him on the Flamenco rhythm guitar and assisting him in song arrangements.

Naoko and Rhythm Guitar

Before meeting Javid, Naoko had never touched a guitar. After watching Javid perform with other rhythm guitarists, Naoko was inspired to learn herself. In 2001, starting with a few tips and techniques from Javid, she slowly eased into the rhythm guitar.

One day, when Javid was in need for a new rhythm guitar player, Javid asked Naoko "Why don't you play with me? I think you're ready. "

Says Javid: "I never thought Naoko would be such a natural music talent. I've performed with many different players but not one of them could play as good as well as Naoko."

They way Naoko holds the strings is very unique. Audiences often comment about Naoko, saying that when she plays the rhythm guitar her hand it's looks like it's dancing, or like she's playing the harp.

Husband and Wife Guitar Virtuosos

Javid & Naoko have performed at concerts throughout the United States, France, Germany and Japan. They have appeared on San Diego television and their music has also provided background on DVD soundtracks. In 2006 Javid's Flamenco album "SILK ROAD" was sent to 275 radio stations in all around U.S and Canada.

Javid & Naoka were an amazing addition to our wedding. They performed for our outdoor beach ceremony and also for our cocktail hour as guests mingled. They set a perfect atmosphere of calm and joy, and we are still hearing compliments from our friends and family. In addition to the quality of the music, they were wonderful to work with. They were very responsive and worked with the sound system and setting of our venue. They invited us to see them perform locally, and we were able to hear them live, pick out songs and best of all meet them in person. Both Javid & Naoka are incredibly kind and welcoming. I can't recommend them more for your event!
