Eishan Ensemble

Next Occurrence : Sat 23rd Jul 2022
Price from $25.00

Overview

Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer Hamed Sadeghi, the ARIA-nominated Eishan Ensemble draws on music from East and West, both contemporary and classical.

Eishan’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions, featuring powerful and diverse improvisatory idioms. Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan defies neat labels.

Sadeghi’s psychedelic virtuosity is joined by the individual talents of Michael Avgenicos on saxophone, Adem Yilmaz on percussion, and Maximillian Alduca on double bass, to create the layered and sophisticated soundscapes that are Eishan.

This performance will begin with the premiere of a new collaborative work from Hamed Sadeghi with Adelaide-based artists Maryam Rahmani on santur, Hilary Kleinig on cello, and Dylan Paul on double bass.

Presented by Nexus Arts as part of Illuminate Adelaide.

This project has been supported by Arts South Australia and the Australia Council for the Arts.
