Journey with Kohesia Ensemble and experience the evocative sounds of Persian music played in a unique jazz style. New original music exploring unusual time structures and microtonal melodies will transport you to another place. Led by double bassist Kate Pass, the Kohesia Ensemble serves as a platform for Kate’s original compositions, which are influenced by her passion for both jazz and Persian music. Kohesia Ensemble explores unusual time structures and microtonal melodies, combining the sounds of Persian flute (ney), percussion (daf) lute (saz) and oud with jazz instruments for a truly unique listening experience.
