About the Artist

Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi, Eishan Ensemble draws on contemporary and classical music traditions of both East and West.

‘Afternoon Tea at Six’ composed by Hamed Sadeghi is a new work from the quintet, that’ll transport you through Persian Classical Music and Western Jazz, in an intimate 70-minute concert.

“The music is complex, multi-faceted, and polyrhythmic, yet the delivery is so easy and relaxed, so it’s never a difficult listen.” – Nick Hudson, The Progressive Aspect

This performance will be an experience that is truly stand alone.

This tour is supported by SIMA’s Regional Touring Program, Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative, Create NSW and Australia Council for the Arts.
