I would like
to dedicate this site to my grandfather
who strived and worked very hard
bringing up 5
children into the beautiful world of music.
Being the father
of Alice, Bella, Hilda, Shawn, & Vachik
with a beautiful
wife named Roza (my grandmother).
He was a entrepenuer,
in import/export as well as, an excellent drummer.
The first person
to introduce the concept of percussions in Iran.
many times for the Shah of Iran,
and was labeled
the Sultan of Drums. He had a unique way of playing Jazz music.
his daughters the art of singing, at the age of five,
my mother Bella,
and her two sisters,
on a childrens radio show
similar to our
known Sesame Street.
They later went
on to acting in many persian movies.
was a very well respected person in the Persian/Armenian
I did not get to spend much time with him
since I was very
young as he passed on.
I only have memories
and pictures to look upon.
That is why I
am creating this memory for the world to see,
Nikole Alvandi for all the hard work he had to go through,
a family of six, running a business,
and getting about
four hours of sleep on a daily basis, due to his music career.
Family is a very
precious thing for everyone.
I am sure that
everyone has a person they hold very close to their heart.
This is the gentleman
I hold very close to my heart.
this site is dedicated to you,
you will always
be with us throughout our lives.
We love you.
