Ensemble Chakâm

Iran/Palestine/France

Ensemble Chakâm, named after an ancient poetic form, was formed in 2014 by Sogol Mirzaei initially to celebrate the Persian musical tradition. Today, the group combines the brilliance of Sogol Mirzaei’s târ (Iran) with the silky qanun of Christine Zayed (Palestine), carried by the deep viola da gamba of Marie-Suzanne de Loye (France).
