Event description

“... a flawless combination, as evidenced by the fine compositions ….” Songlines  UK ★★★★

“casts a spell all its own… astonishing power and convulsive impact…”  Sydney Morning Herald ★★★★½

From Womad, Auckland Arts Festival, Rome Jazz Festival to Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Recital Hall, Eishan Ensemble has performed at the most well known venues and festivals around the world since it was formed in 2016 in Sydney Australia.

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

Eishan’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions with diverse improvisatory idioms featured powerfully. Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “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 percussions and Maximillian Alduca on double bass to create the layered and sophisticated soundscapes of Eishan.

Hamed Sadeghi grew up with the poetry of Rumi, the 13th century Sufi mystic. Rumi’s best-known work, Masnavi, is revered as one of the world’s greatest works of mystical verse, and it is at the heart of Sadeghi’s new album. Project Masnavi premiered at the Studio as part of UnWrapped at the Sydney Opera House, a showcase for independent artists creating genre-breaking, risk-taking contemporary work. Rumi’s challenge to set aside limits has inspired Sadeghi in many directions, resulting in a rich and compelling brew of ideas and sounds.
