Rhythm means joy and pleasure, an almost visceral sensation experienced with the whole body. The new creation of the French-Iranian Keyvan Chemirani, whose music sensibility brings together diverse styles and traditions, is a celebration of rhythm. Hypnotic beats of percussion, kanjira and tablas, from the Indian subcontinent meet Western drums and the beatboxing of the hip hop culture, along with the sounds of the master of Cretan lyre, Sokratis Sinopoulos and Julien Stella’s bass clarinet. Chemirani, Sinopoulos and the other musicians remind us of the beauty of crossovers between different music styles. Through their generosity and openness, they share their rich, complex sound with us, moving back and forth between a meditative and a festive mood, without ever forgetting about the alchemical power of rhythm.
