Bomrani was founded in 2008 by Behzad Omrani (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar). After working as a solo artist (using “Bomrani” as his stage name) and recording Yellow Sky, Blue Sun in 2010, Mani Mozaka (Harmonica and Trombone) and Jahanyar Ghorbani (Electric Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele, Trumpet) joined him. The Bomrani trio gave several experimental performances in smaller venues before Arash Omrani (Keyboards, Piano, Accordion), Kiarash Omrani (Bass Guitar, Double Bass, Banjo). The songs they wrote before 2011 were collected in Naked Socks. After performing in various charity shows in 2012, they gradually started to gain momentum and were recognized by various cultural circles, which led to several collaborations with Iranian reputable theater directors. They were cherished as the most hard-working band in theater music in 2012 by the public relations of the prestigious City Theater of Tehran. In 2012, they were commissioned by Chekeh Records to make a children’s album. The favorite Red Bus was the result, released on June 2014.
In 2014, which marked their first appearance on Iranian National TV, the band started recording its first official studio album Common Vent, released on May, 2015. Bomrani performed Common Vent in Azadi Concert Hall in twelve nights in the summer of 2015. Shortly after that, they started writing material for their next album, Leaving and Passing By, released in early 2017 followed by many concerts in Tehran, Shiraz, Isfahan and Rasht. Thirteen Forty released in early 2019 followed by a Europe tour.
