$34.50 – $81.50
Saturday 26 May, 2018, 8.30pm
Foundry616 welcomes back Far Seas, a seven piece world fusion ensemble renowned for their exotic and uplifting fusion of east-west music. Formed in 2002, Far Seas is a world fusion band combining instruments from various parts of the world: kamancheh (Persian string instrument), tonbak and daf (Persian drums), Ecuadorian wooden flute, Flamenco & classical guitar, Latin and middle eastern percussions, violin and more.
The ensemble is led by multi-award winning Iranian composer and multi-instrumentalist Davood A. Tabrizi, a pioneer of world fusion music on the Australian scene for three decades. Recognised as one of the most exciting and innovative performers on the world music scene today, he brings together a dynamic collaboration between culturally diverse artists to present this musical celebration of East & West fusion.
A prolific artist, Davood has composed and performed extensively in Australia, Iran, Canada and USA for film, theatre, television, radio and special events. His training in Western Classical and Persian Classical music forms the basis for the group’s richly atmospheric music.
“superb … the hauntingly beautiful theme, and the associated tracks, are as compassionate as the film itself … 10/10”(Dennis Nicholson, Australian Soundtracks)
“a moving, cross-ethnic soundtrack” (Frank Hatherleigh, Screen International)
