Artistic Direction: Perséides
Drawing on the cultural diversity and fluidity of their musical backgrounds and their virtuosic command of their instruments, Jean Félix Mailloux and Amir Amiri create a unique fusion that combines the refinement of traditional and classical Persian music with Jazz and Western classical music. The ensemble ventures into innovative territory and epic journeys free of boundaries with imaginative pieces that expand the borders of their musical traditions. The breath-like yearnings of the bass inspire a heartfelt rhythmical flow and the sweet fervour of the santur invokes ancient and nostalgic tales. The result: incandescent, magnetic, and deeply original. Santur: Amir Amiri Bass: Jean Félix Mailloux
