Pallett Band is the alternative voice of Iran’s current generation; a mix of contemporary and classical Persian poetry; a dialog between today’s social issues and their cultural heritage. All of these elements combined, create the colorful world of Pallett. The band is comprised of three classically trained musicians who are not bound by the conventional principles of their musical background, utilizing modern and contemporary motifs in their music.

They are considered pioneers of the new wave of alternative music, because of their authentic sound, which fuses elements of classical, traditional, jazz, rock, and Iranian folk music. The longevity of the band and their continuous success, both domestically and abroad, is a testament to their hard work and dedication to their craft. Incorporating Iranian and Eastern scales within the framework of Western instruments, they started as an unconventional band but slowly made their way to the heart of the mainstream audience.
