Karaj Collective will present new compositions, improvisation and original fusion music bringing together influences from jazz, blues, and Kurdish, Azeri, Afghani and Armenian folk music.

Karaj brings together three distinguished Iranian contemporary musicians all of whom have transversed musical borders and traditions to find truly original sound. Guitarist Pouya Mahmoudi has been one of Iran's most creative, introducing traditional folk scales and melodies to blues and rock form and technique.

Percussionist Ali Nourbakhsh has spent the last ten years exploring the intersections between Iranian, Western and South American rhythm, and bassist Saleh Zarei Lal Abadi's career has taken him from metal to experimental jazz.
