Bio

Daramad
In the Pesian classical tradition the term, Daramad refers to the process of beginning, appearing or emerging. Daramad emerged from musical meetings between musicians at Fremantle’s world music venue, Kulcha. The quartet explores the confluence between the music of the Middle East and improvised jazz and in particular, the modal common ground between these two traditions. It features Iranian saz and guitar maestro, Reza Mirzaei, his fellow countryman, Saeed Danesh on tombek, daf and various percussion, Michael Zolker, oud and eastern percussion, Phil Waldron, double bass and multi-instrumental reedman, Mark Cain. Surprising and unusual combinations of strings and wind textures are at the heart of the group’s sound, as are some of the challenging time signatures they play.
Daramad perform their own compositions as well as works by famed Middle Eastern world composer/performers. They have a weekly gig at the Gypsy Tapas House, Fremantle, and also regularly at Kulcha in Fremantle, as well as the Perth Immigration Detention centre. The group also performed at the 2011 Fairbridge Music Festival and in the 2011 Albany Harbourside Concert Series.
