SARBAND is a unique ensemble, assimilating the stimuli of different musical cultures into its performances. The repertoire encompasses not only medieval music from the Orient and Occident, but also staged productions of Baroque and contemporary music.
SARBAND was founded in March 1986 by musicologist and musician Dr. Vladimir Ivanoff, mainly with the goal of demonstrating the relationships between European early music and the musical cultures of Islam, as well as their considerable consequence for contemporary music. SARBAND is an international project with artists from Iran, Germany, Italy, France, Bulgaria, Hungary, Turkey, Lebanon, Iran, and the USA.
