Alireza Ghorbani became a solo vocalist of the National Orchestra of Iran at 27. At age 30, he became a foreground singer of Persian song, having mastered the numerous scales of Middle Eastern music. Flawlessly controlling the rarest vocal techniques in singing, his very ramified repertory constitutes the radif (non- rhythmic) and the tasnif (rhythmic) techniques.

Ghorbani has laid claims to being a worthy successor of Mohammed Reza Shajarian, the man regarded as the undisputed master of Persian classical song. He is recognized as one of the most active traditional contemporary singers of Iran.
