Javid Afsari Rad Trio ble etablert i 2016 og består av Javid Afsari Rad på det persiske instrumentet santur, Harpreet Bansal på fiolin og Tove Margrethe Erikstad på cello.
Trioen spiller komposisjoner av Javid som er inspirert av persisk, indisk og arabisk musikktradisjon. Javid vokste opp i Iran, men har bodd 30 år i Norge. Dette har gjort at musikken hans også har fått et preg av vestlig klassisk musikk. Trioen består av høyt profilerte musikere i Norge innen indisk, persisk og vestlig klassisk musikk.

Arash Moradi, son of the legendary Ali Akbar Moradi –the most eminent tanbour master of our time– grew up in Kermanshah. Since 2000, he has been living in London. The Yaresan tanbour tradition is his soul; London his home. Having extensively performed with some of the most prominent musicians of Iran, the Middle East and Western Europe. Arash is now proposing his own composition work. Careful not to betray his tradition –his essence as a person– he builds a bridge to his life and musical experience in the West. In this sense, he has put together an orchestrating scheme that focuses on the tanbour–its modes, techniques and sounds– as a path to a new mystic experience.
