Parasang

Parasangtirado

Parasang is a weekly night of live improvisation led by Iranian sound artist, Pouya Ehsaei (Ariwo / Entr'acte / Zabte Sote) and curated by himself and MANANA//Records founder, Harry Follett. Each show is a one-off collaboration exploring the diversity of the city's musical communities through electronic music.

For this weeks show we have invited back Tim Doyle (Maisha/Cykada) who will be working on new techniques with Pouya to connect his drum sensors to the modular.

Joining these tech fiends is the incredible tabla player Camillo Tirado whose last electronic collaboration was a world tour and recording alongside James Holden. Camillo has also played alongside musicians like Terry Riley, Talvin Singh, Nitin Sawhney and Anoushka Shankar.

Past guests at Parasang include Ethiopian krar player Temesgen Zeleke, Afro-Cuban percussionists Hammadi Valdes and Oreste Noda, Moroccan lute player Boujemaa Bouboul, jazz pianist Sarah Tandy, trumpeter Kevin Davy, James Mollison from Ezra Collective, Tim Doyle (Maisha/Cykada), dancehall/reggae drummer Marley Drummond, bassist Andrew Mclean, Aleh Ferreira (Banda Black Rio), Marcos Santana (Timbalada), Grim Artist 'Trim', electronic producer Henry Keen (Soundspecies/Electric Jalaba), Idris Rahman (Soothsayers), Maurizio Ravalico (Dele Sosimi) and Italian experimental vocalist, Maddelena Ghezzi.
