Meikhâneh’s compositions are fed by imagination, improvisation and traditional music from Europe, Mongolia and Iran.

One can hear traveling cords recalling the steppes of Asia and Andalusia. The chiseled rhythms of percussion draw on the Persian tradition. Meïkhâneh takes us to the heart of a music without borders that caresses
