Noavaran Ensemble is a newly formed group of musicians (since
2009), trained in Persian classical and folk music. Noavaran
is in search of new sounds through fusion with other world-wide
styles of music as well as the application of polyphony to
this traditional style of music. Although Persian classical
music has been mostly performed in a monophonic structure, it
enjoys plethora nuances and a rich soul. The first performance
of the group was in March of 2010 at Adelphi University.
This was a performance of a composition by renowned
Iranian-American composer, Mr. Gregory H. Aslani, in
conjunction with three accomplished contemporary musicians.
This work is a fusion of Contemporary music with Persian
Classical music. For more information about this piece, see
