Who We Are
"Nothing breaks down barriers like making friends. It is hard to hate when you come to understand another, when you realize that even though you come from a different society and your cultures are different, all people fundamentally want the same things." - Shahed Mohseni Zonoozi
Inter-Continental Concerts was founded in 2011 by Shahed Mohseni Zonoozi and Sam Mosallaeipour. The two met while attending school at the Eastern Mediterranean University in Cyprus. During their studies, they had made many friends from many nations. Inspired by this cultural kaleidoscope, the two decided to put together a team of dedicated artists committed to using music and the performing arts to create a positive impact on their community.
Shahed Mohseni ZonooziFounder, Producer & Music Composer
Shahed is an Iranian composer and media producer. Playing the Santur by the age of eight, his musical talent was apparent from an early age. Soon after, he picked up a special interest in music composition and audio recording. As a Maestro, he has recorded several patents and won various festival prizes for invention and innovation.
Studying in North Cyprus, Shahed observed talented people from different nationalities. This experience encouraged him to create a media program that would incorporate the diverse talents that had converged there on the tiny island.
“By studying in a multicultural academic environment in Cyprus and observing talented people from different nationalities with different cultures and skills, I opted to create a media program designed in an artistic form to accommodate diverse skills and talents in the arts. This culminated in the establishment of Inter-Continental Concerts in 2011.”

“The positive effect of music on human behavior is a proven phenomenon. As a person who loves music and the performing arts, I always had the desire to impact my society through music and help people connect with one another. Being in an international environment provided me the chance to meet a highly talented and creative person, Shahed M. Zonoozi, who shared similar concerns. This encounter eventually led to creation of the Inter-Continental Concerts.”
