On the countdown to WOMAD are the multi-cultural offerings at Adelaide Fringe. The delightful Kashkul Ensemble provided a sublime night of entertainment at Nexus Cabaret on Tuesday 8 March. Kashkul are Adelaide-based, featuring traditional Persian instruments the Tar (Lute), Kamancheh (Bowed string instrument), Oud (Lute), and Daf (frame Drum).
Behnoosh is the composer of Kashkul’s works, and also plays the Tar. The extraordinary Shiva provides magical vocals. Arash plays Daf, and is one of Iran’s most accomplished percussionists. Adnaan now plays oud in Adelaide after studying classical and oriental music overseas, while Shahriar brings 30 years’ experience to his masterful kamancheh performance. Kashkul was formed in 2001, and their style is stable and harmonious.
Nexus was full Tuesday night and the crowd were enthralled by the ambient and delicate sounds of Kashkul. One hour was the perfect introduction to the beautiful works of this unique outfit. Don’t miss it!
