MJC Presents: SHAYAN with Melbourne Amplified Strings – album launch
Sunday, June 19, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Doors open at 7:00 pm
With a sound that incorporates electronic music, Iranian folk melodies, hip-hop and chamber music, this MJC concert features a collaboration between Jazz quintet SHAYAN and electronic string duo, ‘Melbourne Amplified Strings’ (MAS).
They will launch SHAYAN’s new album, Living in the Machine, performing Omid Shayan’s original compositions that blur the lines between classical, jazz, world and electronic music. This combined ensemble includes some established artists alongside some of Melbourne’s most exciting emerging talent.
SHAYAN features Cheryl Durongpisitkul (alto sax), Omid Shayan (tenor sax), Theo Carbo (electric guitar and effects), Costa Hagi (electric bass) and James McLean (drums), while MAS comprises Xani Kolac (electric violin and effects) and Anita Quayle (electric cello and effects).
This project was made possible via a 2021 Creative Victoria Music Industry Recovery Grant.
