The Mesopotamian Ensemble

The Mesopotamian Ensemble – a quintet established in Western Sydney in 2016, whose union of the violin, oud, percussion, guitar, drum and keyboard explores the beautiful infinite of the musical world of Mesopotamia.

A voice of the diaspora, theirs is an intimate fusion of Mesopotamian and Middle-Eastern classical and contemporary folk music styles.

In Sydney in 2017, the ensemble represented the voice of the Middle-Eastern Australian refugee community at the Sofar Sounds and Amnesty International music event ‘Give A Home’, in support of the world’s refugees.

The Mesopotamian Ensemble has been featured at numerous refugee live arts and cultural events across Sydney.
