Eishan Ensemble

Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player 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 “Middle-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, Pedram Layegh on guitar and Maximillian Alduca on double bass to create the layered and sophisticated soundscapes of Eishan. Formed in 2016 and currently based in Sydney - Australia, Eishan has toured internationally and nationally for numerous times and performed at the most well-known festivals and concert halls. They have been a nominated for ARIA Awards and APRA Art Music Awards 2021.

“Eishan Ensemble is a rare attempt in fusing contemporary Persian classical music with modern jazz. While being seemingly disparate traditions, the modal systems of both allows for a flawless combination, as evidenced by the fine compositions on this debut recording.” Songlines” UK ★★★★
“casts a spell all its own… astonishing power and convulsive impact…” recording.” John Shand, SMH ★★★★½
