Ali Foroutan is a Musician, Singer, Illusionist, Author, Hypnotist and Mentalist from Iran.
He is a graduate of music from the University of Arts and plays several instruments including piano, guitar, setar, etc. He has produced, composed, and arranged more than 50 pieces of music for himself and other artists. He is the creator and inventor of several mentalism books including Voiceless, I Miss Charlotte, and mindCAAN.
He has performed more than 10 TV programs in Iran, including the special Nowruz program in 2013 hosted by Ehsan Alikhani and also the program Friends of Jam Jam Network.
His supernatural powers have been attributed to him because of his mind-reading and hypnosis, but he denies these claims, believing that no one really has supernatural powers. Humility attributes its success in mind reading to a combination of "magic, morphology, psychology, misleading, and stage art." Through his knowledge and skills, he pretends that he can influence people's minds and read their brains. In fact, with subtle suggestions, managing the decision-making process, and reading subtle physical and psychological cues, and paying attention to body language, one becomes aware of the way people think.
"When I watched Voiceless demonstrated by Ali I was baffled. When I read the book It opened a whole world of possibilities. This is something you want to keep in your arsenal of knowledge and pull it out when you need it. Great for virtual or real in-person situations. Was not always a big fan of propless mentalism but I am a fan of voiceless." - Guy Bavli
"Voiceless is a fascinating, practical new technique for deciphering people's thoughts without them even saying a word. I love it! And all mentalists need to learn it." - Dan Harlan
"What a wonderfully entertaining way to perform a horoscope divination. I was captivated by the entire presentation, the principle of Voiceless is wonderful, and I'm looking forward to using it." - Richard Webster
"From Iran, there is Ali Foroutan, who is both an engaging performer as well as the creator of his amazing displays." - Alain Nu
