Kamancello – Raphael Weinroth-Browne (cello), Shahriyar Jamshidi (kamanche)

East-meets-west duo comprised of Shahriyar Jamshidi (kamanche) and Raphael Weinroth-Browne (cello) blurs musical genre conventions with their highly evocative improvised performances. The scope of their creations ranges from soulful and emotive to incendiary and intense, and their sound has been described as being “totally entrancing.” With each performance, Jamshidi and Weinroth-Browne weave an intricate musical tapestry, one that is both memorable and totally unique. This video is an excerpt of a fully improvised performance at Toronto’s Array Space, captured by Nick Kovats.
