Join us for an evening of traditional Iranian music blended with improvisational jazz, celebrating the spirit shared in both styles, along with original compositions from The Sibarg Ensemble. Traditional Iranian instruments and melodies featured.
The Sibarg Ensemble was established in 2008 by Hesam Abedini along with a group of students as the first Fusion Ensemble of the Tehran Music Conservatory in Iran. Since 2010, the Ensemble has since moved to the United States where they have performed at many academic and cultural institutions and music festivals. With each performance, they share their methods and innovations in fusing Eastern and Western melodic patterns that form the basis of their unique and original compositions.
In 2015, Sibarg invited two of the Doctorate students from the UC San Diego music department to join the ensemble, which became a starting point for several concerts in different cities such as San Diego and Los Angeles. In these concerts, Sibarg combined traditional Iranian and Jazz music in order to create a sense of unity and peace and facilitate multiculturalism.
