Gabbeh in Marienkirche

Culture X Change # Iran

Marienkirche Wels, Herrengasse 2


Gabbeh is not only a hand-knotted carpet. Gabbeh is also a music trio.Ensemble Gabbeh lives in Vienna and is inspired by the same concept: It picks up threads and brings them together. Its musical textures and designs evolve from the open space of improvisation and are rooted in the vital diversity of traditional Iranian folklore. A polyphonic fabric of remembered fragments of Persian children's songs, travel narratives and lifelines and their reverberations in the Viennese diaspora. Two worlds, mirrored many times, broken and put together anew.
Golnar Shahyar - Voice, Percussion
Mona Matbou Riahi - Clarinet
Manu Mayr - Double Bass
