Eishan Ensemble presents Persian Chamber Jazz during their Australian Tour for the 2019 Sydney Fringe Festival.
Eishan Ensemble defies neat labels. Variously described as Persian Chamber Jazz and Middle Eastern Jazz Fusion, Eishan is a vehicle for the original music of acclaimed Iranian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi.
After a successful debut album release late last year, Eishan emerge in 2019 with new material, blurring the lines that define genre even further, to create something that is stand alone. Original new music with lashings of improvisation, diverse, plural, completely fresh sounds out of the suburbs of Sydney, drawing on the contemporary and the traditional, the East and the West.
With Hamed Sadeghi on tar, Pedram Layegh on classical guitar, Michael Avgenicos on saxophone, Elsen Price on double bass and Adem Yilmaz on percussion, the layered soundscapes Eishan Ensemble create together are driven by the individual talents of each member as much as by the compositions themselves. Formed in 2016, Eishan Ensemble have performed internationally in Iran, Malaysia, Singapore,
The Phillipines and Taiwan; with local performances across Australia. Their first album, Nim Dong, was released in late 2018 to critical acclaim.
