With instruments that consist of little more than a big round drum skin (the daf) and a small drum (the tombak), Mortazavi creates complex, polyrhythmic sound worlds in which the listener can get lost in forever. He often uses the time signature of 11/8, which is central in folk music of Iran, Turkey and the Balkans. He left a mind blowing impression with his concert at the Minimal Music Festival 2019 and now he’s back for Amsterdam Dance Event!
