Listeners are treated to the sounds of Iran, Mr. Etniko's birthplace, and its neighbors, played on instruments native to that part of the world. After Farshid moved to Paris as a teenager, he absorbed more sounds of the West, including Gypsy Guitar from the south of France, and Spanish Guitar. For decades, Farshid has been home in America and St. Louis, where he has more fully explored and infused American jazz and pop with the music of his youth. Cleverly and sometimes brilliantly, Farshid and The Mosaic Trio interpret American pop songs from the Police, The Beatles and Santana, among others, in styles and on Instruments associated with the East, creating a sound recognizably American and recognizable something else, a fusion that might be called American World music.
Farshid Etniko plays Spanish Guitar, Turkish Baglama, Persian Hammer Dulcimer & Arabic drums.
Sandy Weltman on Harmonica, Ukulele, Arabic Frame Drum & Bass
Dave Black on Guitar.
