Meikhâneh's compositions are fed by imagination, improvisation and traditional music from Europe, Mongolia and Iran. The luminous and captivating voices carry the power of East European singings, the aerial melodies of the great spaces, as well as the depth of the khöömii, Mongolian overtone singing. One can hear traveling cords recalling the steppes of Asia and Andalusia. The chiseled rhythms of percussion draw on the Persian tradition.
Meïkhâneh takes us to the heart of a music without borders that caresses the soul. Its name borrowed from Persian poetry means the "House of Intoxication". We let ourselves be carried...
For their second album La Silencieuse, the trio Meïkhâneh, composed of Maria Laurent on vocals, Johanni Curtet on guitar, dombra and khöömii overtone singing, Milad Pasta on Iranian percussions, surrounded by three guests: Bijan Chemirani with the lutes tzouras, saz and percussions, Uuganbaatar Tsend-Ochir (Egschiglen) with Mongolian horse head double-bass ikh khuur and Martin Coudroy with diatonic accordion.
