Since 1987, Fariba was tutored by Hossein Alizadeh to whom she owes most of her expertise in this field. Her first public performance was as a member of Khojasteh Group, comprising exclusively of Iranian ladies, which performed a concert at Rudaki Concert Hall in Tehran under the leadership of Ms. Susan Aslani (Dehlavi) in 1992. Avay-e-Doust Group was formed by Fariba in 1994 and has since performed several concerts both in Iran and abroad under her leadership. The music performed at the said concerts comprised entirely of her own composition. Her participation in various international festivals as leader of the first traditional Iranian musical group comprising solely of Iranian ladies since the Islamic Revolution of Iran has served to reintroduce this concept to the international community. Two CDs of her concerts entitled ‘Rozaneh’, and ‘Aseman’ performed in Morocco (the Fez Festival), have already been published abroad. In addition to composition and performance of concerts, Fariba has also been engaged in tutoring setar students for several years.
