East of West - Seyahat

East of West - Seyahat
East of West trio plays original music that primarily draws from the rich musical influences of the Balkans and the Mediterranean. With experience in jazz and Middle Eastern classical music forms, the band’s compositional focus is on creating beautiful story-telling melodies spun over rich traditional rhythms, allowing space for open solos and improvisation. Oud, double bass and percussion blend to create a sound that will awaken in the listener a sense of mystery and possibility.

The trio consists of Bosnian-born composer Goran Gajić (double bass), Philip Griffin (oud, lauto) and Malindi Morris (percussion).

About this track...

Seyahat is the Turkish word for a journey - the first part of this composition being written in Slovenia and, some years later, the second part in Australia. Written for Turkish bağlama (here, played on Laouto) and daf (a Kurdish frame drum with ancient roots, this piece spans two hemispheres and journeys not just through space, but through time.
