M & M...the Afro-Persian Experience (EPK)
Label: Universe Soul Records
Musicians Marcus Miller and Mehdi Bagheri have joined forces to create a new sound in World music. Mehdi and Marcus began working together in January 2016. Both are respected musicians and artists in their respective fields. Miller has developed a unique style of drumming that is rooted in the rhythms of the African diaspora and Bagheri is a master Kamancheh player who is recognized throughout the world for his abilities. Both musicians regularly perform internationally and have established respectable careers in their respective fields. Together, the duo plays original music meant to touch the soul and move the feet.
Our project has special significance because it brings together two uniquely different cultural traditions and shows that no matter how different we may appear on the outside, at the core we are still basically the same…human beings. This speaks to some of the bigger issues that we face daily in the world. Music has the power to heal and unite. We feel that our music is both uplifting and filled with the intangible quality of spirit. As instrumentalists, we have both mastered our crafts and are able to convey, without words, a feeling that is not always found in much of today's contemporary music.
Although the group has yet to perform live for a public performance, their music has already been licensed for an upcoming 2017 independent film release entitled "My Critic". The duo is in the process of recording its debut album expected for release in 2017.
There are no scheduled shows at the moment.
