Negar Bouban is an Iranian musician, musicologist, composer and Oud player, born on a Spring day in 1973 in Tehran.

She has been working for more than two decades in research and university teaching, while at the same time pursuing her career as both a composer, and a performing and recording musician with ensembles, as well as solo. A major aspect of her music is the art of improvisation, which is a distinctive part of her concerts.

Negar has a PhD in Art Studies, in the inter-disciplinary field of Linguistics and Musicology, in which she wrote her thesis on Foundations of Rhythm in Persian Language and Dastgah music.

Here is a recent version of Negar's CV, and to hear more about Negar, her ideas and what she has done, in more detail,
