Kashkul Ensemble Home Page


In Persian mystical philosophy there is a concept of 'no place' which is situated within; in the inner world of the soul. There, time and distance are not measured objectively and every colour and shape, every sound and smell, takes on a spiritual significance because it is the visual expression of the invisible, a reflection of the unseen. It is this place that Kashkul Ensemble seeks to draw the audience to reflect upon, through the medium of music and poetry.

Led by composer and tar player Behnoosh Aryanpad, Kashkul Ensemble performs traditional Persian instrumental and original vocal compositions woven against classical and contemporary poetry.
