Daily Discovery: Atine – Ey Tir

Enjoy ‘Ey Tir (Les coeurs sont ta cible)’, the new video by Paris-based ensemble Atine.

The group is formed by five Iranian musicians, currently living in France, who are re-arranging traditional Persian music employing Arabic, flamenco, jazz and baroque influences. Back in November, they released their debut album Parisienne de Iran on Accords Croisés

The five musicians of the group play music that is both art music and popular music at the same time. The sophisticated sequencing of Persian music, the intertwining melodies of tar and qanun, the deft tombak drum, the profoundly rich vocals are darkly mirrored by the western viola da gamba“.
