Melbourne based Garden Quartet was formed by Gelareh Pour and Brian O’Dwyer in 2016.
Blending contemporary Persian music with Western motifs, Garden Quartet create emotive and delicate pieces, entwined with subtle pop sensibilities, that lift into vibrant and triumphant movements. Persian poetry entwines as the Quartet delves into themes of place, home, love, loss, and hope, in original and cherished works.
Taking inspiration from Iran, Australia, and beyond, Garden Quartet create contemporary music steeped in history, exploring the dualities of multiculturalism, and what it means to be Iranian-Australian world music, and from more than one place.
