With their project Sistanagila; Israeli and Iranian musicians living in Berlin seek dialogue by approaching each other; listening to each other with curiosity and playing together. Carried by centuries-old Jewish and Iranian musical traditions; the musicians embark on a journey that ultimately leads them to themselves. Bazaar represents a new phase for Sistanagila. This Album is a connection between what was; what is; and what is to come. We are taken on a trip to an old market place where different stalls offer a colorful pallet of musical styles; from acoustic to electronic; folklore to classic; jazz to ambient. At the heart of the Bazaar is the violin virtuoso Guy Braunstein; joining Sistanagila for their originally composed “Four Oriental Seasons"; showcasing a new style of concerto for a classical virtuoso and band. As we stroll along the smell of different spices enwrap us; we watch the sunlight play with the shade; and experience a fusion of composition; improvisation; and imagination.
