He strives to use poetic, literary, philosophical, and political elements in his music.
Iranian born Flamenco guitarist Mehran's "skillful guitar work and imaginative compositional approach shine through…resulting in an intriguing mélange of romantic, Middle Eastern, Spanish, Latin, Brazilian, smooth jazz, and experimental themes and tonalities with a political edge." - Guitar Player Magazine
