Eishan Ensemble

“Casts a spell all on its own…” – Sydney Morning Herald

Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer Hamed Sadeghi, the ARIA-nominated Eishan Ensemble draws on contemporary and classical music traditions from both East and West. Through this unique combination the ensemble creates groundbreaking orchestral performances. 

Eishan’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions that feature diverse improvisatory idioms, including jazz.  

Sadeghi’s psychedelic virtuosity is joined by the individual talents of Michael Avgenicos on saxophone, Adem Yilmaz on percussions, and Maximillian Alduca on double bass to create layered and sophisticated soundscapes. 

Described as ‘Persian chamber jazz’ and ‘Middle Eastern jazz fusion', Eishan defies neat labels and is more than the sum of its parts.
