There are no borders between east and west in the eclectic music of Moody-Amiri, a duo comprised of Amir Amiri (santur) and Richard Moody (viola). Inspired by the diversity and fluidity between their respective Persian and Western Classical training, Amiri and Moody have created an engaging and distinctive sound fusing elements of traditional Persian music with jazz, classical, and Indian styles. Amiri (Canada-Iran) and Moody (Canada) met in 2011 and in their collaboration seek to expand the boundaries of their respective musical traditions. Balancing tradition and innovation and finding that possibilities are limitless, Moody Amiri has already gained recognition for its groundbreaking contributions to the international music scene.
