Unapologetically creative and unafraid of fusion, Chloe Pourmorady is a master of juxtaposition. With pieces that are as grand as they are intimate, ethereal yet earthly, and ancient yet modern, her multi-identity is reflected in the cross-cultural ethos of her music. For her first studio album, “BEGIN MAJESTY,” Chloe collaborates with a worldly Ensemble of musicians and utilizes Farsi, Hebrew, Ladino, and English as languages of choice to fit her melodies.
Chloe’s whimsical and energetic Ensemble bring life and personality to the music. “BEGIN MAJESTY” is laced with beautiful Persian tar solos by Eskandar Alexander Meimand, intricate percussion work by masters Ava Nahas and Jamie Papish, wailing clarinet lines of Zack Lodmer, groovy basslines of Ramin Abrams, the jazzy argentinian touch of guitarist/producer Daniel Raijman, and the gypsy-classical-crossover violin playing of Chloe Pourmorady. Together they combine for a sound that is uniquely the Chloe Pourmorady Ensemble.”
