About the Event
"casts a spell all its own. Astonishing power and convulsive impact." – John Shand, SMH ★★★★½
Eishan Ensemble are a Sydney based quintet performing an original repertoire of traditionally inspired modern jazz. Led by Tar virtuoso Hamed Sadeghi, Eishan regularly perform to their dedicated fanbase across Australia and internationally. Their well received debut release 'Nim Dong' was released through Art as Catharsis in 2018 with a follow up album currently in the works.
The ensemble’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions with diverse improvisatory idioms featured powerfully. Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan Ensemble defies neat labels.
With Hamed Sadeghi on tar, Pedram Layegh on 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.
Eishan Ensemble's concert at venue505 is presented by Sydney Fringe Festival before they start their national tour in Australia and their international tour in Europe.
