The Sibarg Ensemble combines the sounds of Iranian music and American jazz through an intercultural improvised music making. By utilizing Iranian and Western instruments, including the kamâncheh, târ, robâb, vocals, piano, double bass, and drums the musicians draw on their own musical backgrounds while creating a unique dialogue with one another. Ultimately, this ensemble cultivates something that is neither Iranian nor American, but rather a fluid soundscape that transgresses regional and cultural identifications.
