Lead by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer Hamed Sadeghi, Eishan Ensemble will present a stunning concert of eclectic Middle-Eastern jazz fusion at Blue Mountains Theatre.

Drawing upon contemporary and classical music traditions of both East and West, the ensemble’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions with diverse improvisatory idioms featured powerfully.   

Since forming in 2016, Eishan Ensemble have performed internationally in Iran, Malaysia, Singapore, The Phillipines and Taiwan; with local performances across Sydney, including for Vivid Festival and Extended Play Festival of New Music at City Recital Hall, garnering rave reviews from audiences and critics alike:

“[Eishan Ensemble] casts a spell all its own… astonishing power and convulsive impact”
– John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald.      

“A rare attempt in fusing contemporary Persian classical music with modern jazz… a flawless combination” – Songlines UK.

“Exciting and impressive” - Sydney Arts Guide.

With Hamed Sadeghi on tar, Pedram Layegh on classical 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.

For this special Blue Mountains Theatre presentation, Eishan Ensemble will perform pieces from their highly acclaimed debut album Nim Dong alongside new works from their upcoming album.
