There are no borders between east and west in the eclectic music of Moody Amiri, a duo comprised of Amir Amiri (santur) and Richard Moody (viola). Inspired by the diversity and fluidity between their respective Persian and western classical and jazz training, Amiri and Moody have created an engaging and distinctive sound fusing elements of traditional Persian music with jazz, classical, Indian, and modern spiritual styles.
Amiri (Canada-Iran) and Moody (Canada) met in 2011, and in their collaboration seek to expand the boundaries of their respective musical backgrounds. Balancing tradition and innovation and finding that possibilities are limitless, Moody Amiri has already gained recognition for its ground-breaking contributions to the international music scene, nominated for western Canadian Music Awards 2014.
For this performance, Amiri and Moody will present both past and new collaborations and compositions.
