Samassin - The Shimmering

Samassin - The Shimmering
Samassin are a Melbourne based ensemble performing earthy, vibrant, innovative, eastern tinged compositions, with ancient rhythms and cinematic beauty.

Melbourne based Samassin play cinematic original music in a world fusion vein. Samassin are currently realising album two; Sin Samas, six evocative long form works all paying homage to our star the Sun (Samas) and our roving lunar companion; "Sin" Their album “Golden Muse”, released in early 2016, is rich with exotic melodies and grooves, each piece a vivid and emotional journey. The sound is rich and textured and the members play with passion and energy. Written by composer Kirsty Pittman and beautifully interpreted by the band, these enigmatic highly detailed compositions draw on the influences of jazz, contemporary art music and traditional rhythmic and melodic ideas from the Middle-East and India. The band are also skilled improvisors and each composition also has an improvisatory element.
