SHAYAN is a forward-thinking, ever-changing jazz ensemble that blends jazz with electronic music, Iranian folk melodies, pop and classical.


BEKTET is the brainchild of Melbourne-based saxophonist and composer Jared Becker. The ensemble traverses the energetic and dynamic music of modern jazz, whilst drawing heavily upon the spiritual music of modal improvisation in the release of their debut full-length album, Kinship. The album is an expression of the intimacy that exists between band mates when creating music together, and the emotional world that musicians tap into when entering the shared space of improvisation.
