    Persian Jazz Improvisation
    A Concert by Sibarg Ensemble

    Sunday November 15

    Sibarg Ensemble is a Contemprory Iranian Music band based in Orange County, California. Hesam Abedini formed Sibarg while studying in Tehran University Music School in 2008, and has perfomed worldwide since. The current line up consists of Niloufar Shiri (Kamancheh), Ebrahim Poustinchi (Tar), Kyle Motl (Double Bass), Josh Charney (Piano), Arian Khoroushi, (Percussion), and Hesam Abedini as the Vocalist.

    Sibarg is known as one of the precursors in the Iranian Jazz genre, which fuses Western Jazz with Traditional Iraninan music. Kyle Molt, Josh Charney, and Ebrahim Poustinchi joined Sibarg in 2010 following their immigration to the United States to create a multicultural program in which original compositions will be performed in different forms such as improvisation, folk songs, and composed pieces. Their performance will be a fusion of Classical and Folkloric Persian music with contemporary Jazz.
