Music > Persian Musicians > ARSI: ON THE WAY HOME BY MILAD MOLAVI
Arsalan Nami was born on May 21th, 1984 in Shiraz, Iran. Since childhood days, being a noisy loud
kid and getting away with his innocent look, made him grow up becoming
a boy, love performing in any style in front of people. He moved to Sweden
at age of 4. He took-off by listening to his older brother playing the
oriental keyboard and later on watching, dancing and dreaming to become
a performer like his first idol 'Michael Jackson' that made him the
favorite kid to perform on discos and parties. He kept using his
energetic mind and body to develop himself and his voice and before
getting into 'Soft Rock Area' he
started with 'Hip Hop Rap' That was the point where made his
self-esteem grow and doing anything anywhere, on stage and in front of
a huge audience, and that was what the place he called 'HOME '.
