Meïkhâneh’s compositions are fed by imagination, improvisation and traditional music from Europe, Mongolia and Iran. The luminous and captivating voices carry the power of East European singings, the aerial melodies of the great spaces, as well as the depth of the khöömii, Mongolian overtone singing. 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
the soul. Its name borrowed from Persian poetry means the «House of Intoxication». We let ourselves be carried…

With the 3 guests of their new album, Uuganbaatar Tsend-Ochir, Bijan Chemirani and Martin Coudroy, Meïkhâneh's music will travel in Iran, Mongolia and Europe.

Meïkhâneh is looking for a producer and residencies to create the sextet concert of the new album "La Silencieuse".
