A fusion band of Flamenco and traditional Persian music, Mezghoon Ensemble is a newly formed band with Mima Goodarz (vocals) and Emad Bonakdar (composer).
A composer, multi-instrumentalist and a performer, Emad Bonakdar started his musical training with jazz and pop before finding refuge in Flamenco. An avid lover of Persian traditional music he strived for many years to join the traditional beat of his homeland with the expressive and soulful rhythms of Flamenco creating a style that is uniquely his. Emad who currently lives in Menlo Park and has been actively composing music has joined in with Mima Goodarz to form Mezghoon fusion ensemble.
An experienced singer in her own rights, Mima--through her recent collaboration with Emad--has embarked on a new style of music that fits perfectly well with her character and her training, all the while keeping her roots in her cherished Persian traditional music.
The ensemble's main goal is to bring variations in tempo and rhythm flavored with beautiful Persian poetry of Hafez, Rumi, and Khayyam along with that of the modern Iranaian poets.
