Artist Profiles: Sarband

Sarband

Sarband The group’s name Sarband stems from Persian and Arabic, and denotes an improvised coupling of two parts within a musical suite. Bulgarian musician Vladimir Ivanoff founded Ensemble Sarband in Germany, in 1986 and has been pursuing an archaeology of complex connections ever since.

Above all, Sarband endeavors to show all possible connections between European music, and Islamic and Jewish music-culture. Both sensitively and intensely, Sarband celebrates the symbiotic relationship between the Middle East and the West.
