Zhubin Kalhor was born in 1980 from Iranian parents, he started his musical journey at the age of 14, when he started learning to play Daf (the framedrum) and Kamanche (the Iranian fidel) with the famous Iranian master Ardeshir Kamkar. After having played Persian classical music (radiff) with various masters, he left Iran and settled in Pune, India where he met musicians from all over the world. Years of playing with musicians trained in different background, like classic Indian, Jazz and Blues, Turkish, Arabic etc. gave Zhubin the opportunity to experiment and find his unique style.
But to him music is not only a matter of style. It’s about transforming spirituality and the mysteries of life into chemistry with the listener. The last 5 years Zhubin has performed solo and with various bands in concerts and festivals all over the world, among others with Bahramji, Ahura, Barbad, Pecheurs de Perles, Prem Joshua and the Mystics of Sound and Hawa.
Rajkumar Bikramjit Singh was born into the Royal family of Rajkumar Roton Singh and Yaimabi Devi in the town of Imphal in Manipur februari 65. In 1974 tragedy struck this self confident 8-year old. An accident left him incapacitated for over a year. Bikram was under closely monitored medical treatment for multiple fractures which he endured after falling off a tree. The shadow cast over young Bikramjit’s misfortune, prompted his father to gift him with his first flute whiles he convalesced. All that persistent practise paid off: Bikram was just thirteen years old when he started accompanying singers and other musicians on tours. He played for (AIR) All India Radio that year with some established radio performers. But his real reckoning came when he moved to Pune to pursue higher studies.
In 1989, Bikram moved to Pune to complete his masters in Archaeology followed by a Ph.D in 1992. However, pretty soon his academic pursuits came to a halt as Bikram dove passionately to pursue his musical career. He met fellow 'outcast' Zhubin there and discovered their shared spirituality easily overcame the 15 year generation gap and so together they released Himalay.
Their music blends ranging from Iran to India, a carpet weaving are the Northeast. Artist's compositions, where the two partners ranging from local to global album, relaxing at the peak of the Himalaya Mountains as a break in life. Misty mountains, the villages along the shores of rivers that pour, delicate anklets tinkle in the morning to the sound of the awakening of the image with the full album. Zagros'un mountains, the valleys of the passage, from the plains of the Himalayas extending the music's poetry breathe Zhubin and Singh.
