Fared Shafinury

Classical Persian Indie Rocker

"I Will Build A Boat" is a short documentary I directed for my RTF 318 class giving the tiniest glimpse into the life of Iranian-American Fared Shafinury, a thoroughly talented, down to earth musician living in Austin, TX. His 7-piece "Classical Persian indie rock" band, Tehranosaurus, recently signed a record deal, and their first full-length album, "Behind The Seas," will be released later this year.
