Karaj Collective

Celebrate Nowruz with a special evening of Iranian Jazz in the House!

Karaj Collective brings together three distinguished Iranian musicians who have travelled across musical borders and traditions to create a truly original sound. Guitarist Pouya Mahmoudi is one of Iran’s most creative musicians and intertwines traditional folk scales and melodies with blues and rock. Percussionist Ali Nourbakhsh has spent 10 years exploring the intersections between Iranian, Western and South American rhythm. Rounding off the line-up is Bassist Saleh Zarei Lal Abadi whose career has taken him from metal to experimental jazz. Karaj Collective recently appeared at the renowned Kings Place in London.
