Esharêh at PNCA (Organised by AFI with the support of the Embassy of France in Pakistan and Pakistan National Council of the Arts)

Alliance Française d’Islamabad (AFI), in collaboration with the Embassy of France and Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) organised a concert of the French Ensemble, Esharêh. Esharêh, allusion in Persian, brings together artistes from diverse cultural backgrounds and musical traditions. Last night’s performance showed the beautiful link between Eastern and Western cultures. Esharêh combined South-Asian sounds, chants of the Arab world and Persian percussions with the musical heritage of Brittany, France to mesmerise the audience at PNCA. Pakistani musicians also accompanied the French performers for a few pieces. The combination not only added to the appeal of music but also carried a message of peace and harmony.

The Ensemble Esharêh is composed of three European musicians, Simon Dégremont, Matteo Pastorino, and Julien Lahaye. The three bring together diverse musical traditions. Simon studied traditional music from Brittany, France. He draws a part of his creativity from these traditional songs. Matteo was born in Sardinia and moved to Paris at the age of 19 to pursue his Jazz education. Julien is a percussionist and also the artistic director of Esharêh. He started his musical training in African Mandinka music under the greatest of Masters. He then moved on to Iranian drums. He considers himself a colourist percussionist and loves combining his gestures and sounds to every kind of music, forms of speech and dance.
