Bahramji & Swann
“Music is an invitation to open our hearts, to hear something beyond words, beyond the heart, beyond the silence, beyond all understanding, there - where we all belong.”
“The way of the Sufi’s is the way of dance, songs and celebration.” (Bahramji)
The project BAHRAMJI & SWANN is uniting two of the best talents of the modern ethnic ambient and chillout scene, which has developed in Europe:
BAHRAMJI, singer of Iranian Kurdish origin, with a superb, mystical oriental voice, santoor master (Iranian instrument with metal strings struck with delicate clappers), the setar (Iranian instrument with three strings) and the Ney (Persian flute).
SWANN, member of the ambient group ELEA, French producer, DJ and compiler of the “Kumharas Ibiza” and “Villa Mercedes Ibiza” series, also expert in ethnic percussion intruments from around the world (balafon, udu, derbouka, djembe, bongos, congas), Indian and Balinese flute player, and guitar player.
After spending months in the studio, the group presents us two superb new albums:
BAHRAMJI & SWANN “Celestial Doorways”, ethnic chillout (Blue Flame Records)
INNER-JI “Dancing Blossoms”, psy-ambient and progressive psy-trance (Space Tepee Music).
Both albums were recorded in the small town of Aniane, Sothern France, in a magnificent stone mansion from the Middle Ages and in Ibiza, in the studios of Space Tepee. BAHRAMJI & SWANN called in several additional musicians for arrangements and recordings: Elea Goa, singer and keyboard player of the group ELEA; Bashir Pourmand, tombak player; Amu Ahava, bansuri flute and sitar player; Ananda Krishna, Hang and didgeridoo player.
With their guests, BAHRAMJI & SWANN give live performances in Ibiza and all over the world, in a strongly ethnic form (vocals, santoor, flute, percussions from around world), intensified by the live electronic programming from SWANN.
A magnificent live act, mystical, powerful and original.
