Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi, 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 “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan defies neat labels.
Sadeghi’s psychedelic virtuosity is joined by the individual talents of Michael Avgenicos on saxophone, Maximillian Alduca on double bass and Adem Yilmaz on percussions, to create the layered and sophisticated soundscapes of Eishan.
Formed in 2016 and currently based in Sydney - Australia, Eishan has performed internationally in Iran, Malaysia, Singapore, The Philippines and Taiwan; and nationally in Australia. Their first album Nim Dong was released late 2018 to critical acclaim.
2020 saw the release of their brand new album Afternoon Tea at Six.
"Eishan Ensemble casts a spell all its own… astonishing power and convulsive impact…"
"“Eishan Ensemble is a rare attempt in fusing contemporary Persian classical music with modern jazz… a flawless combination”"
Wanderlust Concert Series
Inspire your wanderlust through the world of music when Blue Mountains Theatre transports you to faraway and exotic places with the Wanderlust Concert Series.
Over seven magical Friday nights, these extraordinary concerts explore ancient music traditions melded with contemporary influences from across the globe.
Our musical voyage starts with modern-pop explorations of Indigenous identity; dances joyously through the dynamic rhythms of Spanish Flamenco, Balkan Gypsy and Afro-Cuban Rumba past and present; detours through mystical ancient Malta; swings through rockabilly Americana; and ends with a mesmerising fusion of East-meets-West Persian jazz.
Join us for one, some, or all of these special events, and strap in for a thrilling and uplifting adventure of sound commencing February 2021.
The Wanderlust Concert Series is supported by Live Music Australia - an Australian Government initiative
