Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi, the quintet 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 Pedram Layegh on guitar, 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 sees the release of their brand-new album “Afternoon Tea at Six”. Their much anticipated 2020 National, Asian and European tours have now been moved forward to 2021.
